to reflect

I got some reflective yarn by Red Heart thinking I would make a few simple items to make it easier to be seen while walking the dogs at night... in the colder months I take them during the day, but as things heat up it gets too hot for that... so with this in mind I wanted light weight items that didn't add warmth..
I went with a long very skinny scarf that could be worn as a belt or tied on to whatever lol

Using size 15 US cables I cast on 175 stitches long tail.. in pink, cut the yarn.. knit a row in black again cutting the yarn... bound off in pink.. I just tied the ends together adding one strand of fringe to the end with less tail ends then tied them together....
Very easy takes only a few minutes,  but could make the difference of being seen or not

chickens... lots of chickens

Nostradamus loves watching the babies..

These are the little ones he is watching.. Cornish rocks, Leghorns, Cochins and two we are not sure about yet...

These little ones are bantam Cochins and Ameraucanas... and a few we are not sure of yet lol  ..

in this group we have Reds, Leghorns and buff Orpingtons

Theses are full sized Ameraucanas the only pullets we got other than in the first group.. they didn't have straight run.. we do try and stick with straight run as much as we can.. the roos will have a much longer happy life..
this is our new frizzle... so soft

this girl turned into quite a beauty.. in spite of the look she's giving my phone lol

a few of the hens we were gifted last fall.. they don't normally stick this close together glad I had my phone ready to snap a shot

this hen is one of the babies we hatched out last year.. she is a total sweetie...
just a few our new and not so new chickens..
Happy Easter
