The chickens are molting... so what can I do?
Like I've mentioned before, sometimes I just like to play. Lately, the chickens have been molting and dropping lots of feathers. I like feathers, so I picked up some of the nicer ones and even found a crow feather the other day. I thought maybe I could make a "Dream Catcher." I worked very hard yesterday, in the barn and garden, so I'm a bit weary today and have been just kind of taking it easy, so today was the perfect day. The frame of the Dream Catcher is from a mulberry tree sapling that I had to remove. I peeled off the bark (and fed it to the goat) and bent it into a frame. The cording is some of my handspun Jacob's sheep wool. I like it. What do you think?
