Hello all, we hope everyone is doing well and enjoying this fine spring weather! Mike is in the process of cleaning up the yard for the summer and getting all of the outdoor furniture and statuary back in place and Patty is busy in the kitchen making some more bread!
We just placed an order for some baby chickens! They are always cute little fella's when they are newly hatched! Some of our hens are now getting past their egg producing years and need to be replaced with younger chickens. We have ordered 5 Buff Minorca's, 5 white Wyandotte's and 5 Black Australorp's. The Buff Minorca's are a buff golden color and lay white eggs, the White Wyandotte's are a pure white heavy hen and they lay brown eggs, the Black Australorp's are pure black and lay brown eggs as well. The chicks are scheduled to arrive between Sunday June 12 and Wednesday June 15 so if you would like to see them in the very early stages we still have rooms available for the weekend of June 17. The chickens should start laying eggs when they are between 18 and 26 weeks old, quite a window!
The Holland Tulip festival is underway right now and we are running a special through Saturday, May 14 of wine and chocolates in your room for a two night stay, so give us a call and enjoy the Tulip festival. We still have some rooms for Memorial Day so don't miss out on a beautiful time of year. That is all for now, talk to you all later.
Mike and Patty
