Traveling with your Rabbit

Sugar loves to go for rides in the car. 
He is a great little travel buddy. He goes to the office with me sometimes, but
has actually traveled as far as a 14 hour trip. He does great in the car, and I always have his vest, leash, and carrier. I also travel with my rabbit first aid kit, fresh hay, water, pellets, litter, etc.
Believe me, if you need something for your rabbit while out of town, you don't want to have to try to locate a rabbit specific item in a strange city. 

My Rescue Rabbits: CoCo and Chanel

When I rescued CoCo and Chanel, they did not smell good.
Their fur was mated from never being brushed, and it had urine matted in it.
Chanel, being white, was actually covered in urine stains. I am sure CoCo was too, but 
his dark fur helped mask it.

Victorian Trading Company

One of my favorite mail order catalogs is from the company Victorian Trading Co.  I have been a customer for as long as I can remember! I am so excited when I go to the mailbox and see one of their catalogs, just waiting for me! I've always had a love for the Victorian era. I think it was such a romantic time! As you walk through my home,  you can see how I incorporate many of their beautiful items.   Now that I have a little hobby farm, I have been delighted to see that many of the items they have in their catalog, and online fit right in to the farmhouse decor. I love "nesting" and decorating my home and changing it up from season to season. Victorian Trading Co. has a plethora of gorgeous items from which to choose, from the inside to the outside of your home.

This is the Cape May tablecloth from the Castle and Cottage Collection.  As you can see, it is perfect for a luncheon on the patio, or would be equally as beautiful on a table indoors for lunch or dinner.

How to Give a Chicken a Bath

Yes, I am serious. We do give our chickens baths here at Happy-Days-Farm.
Why do you ask? Simple, it looks better, they have to feel better, and it helps prevent fly strike.
Fly strike is a condition that chickens with a poopy butt are more susceptible to. The flies locate the warm, wet area, and proceed to lay their eggs there, knowing it will be a good environment for the eggs to hatch. Once the eggs hatch, the maggots proceed to eat on the waste, as well as the flesh of the chickens, causing horrible sores that if not caught early, can lead to the death of the chicken.
