New Kid On the Block

We are going to get a cat...eventually.  

My family and I are in the infancy stages of cat planning and are mapping out the right time to bring this new critter home.  It's been fun planning  this new chapter and has allowed me to reminisce about the cat I had growing up. These fond memories remind me of how much I really do enjoy them. 

I love their attitude.

I love their sass. 

I love their independence. 

I love their moodiness.

And then it dawned on me. All these traits that I love about cats just screams to be made into a new ChickinBoots character! So without further ado, I introduce the new kid on the ChickinBoots block, CatinClogs!

I feel like CatinClogs is pretty special and needs it's own social media account separate from ChickinBoots.  CatinClogs is sure to please all cat owners with it's fun, wacky humor and I hope you take a moment to drop by or recommend it to a cat lover in your life!

Cheers to cat ownership!

I've Thought About Quitting

I have been feeling a bit sad over here at ChickinBoots these past few days.  Someone stole the following image that I created one year ago:

The person removed my ChickinBoots watermark and added their own page name to it.  The tampered image has now been shared hundreds of thousands of times.  My first reaction: angry, sad and frustrated.  I spend so much time creating my art and to have an image stolen out from under me and tampered with is heartbreaking.  I reached out to the page owner about taking it down. They eventually did but before agreeing to doing so had the audacity to ask me to prove to them that this image did in fact belong to ChickinBoots. Really?!
Because of my frustration and sadness I have felt this past week I actually contemplated shutting down ChickinBoots.  But after a few days of thinking things through I realized that quitting was not the answer.  If I quit I would let the people who do these kinds of things win.  I would also let down the people who support me…

Orange Peel Coop Cleaner

Orange Peel Coop Cleaner
To clean your coop, have you ever used the Orange Peel White Vinegar Coop Cleaner from Fresh Eggs Daily?  I love this particular cleaner because it smells better than bleach, it's all natural and it's multi-purpose!   How is it multi-purpose, you ask? 
White vinegar kills mold and is an ant repellent.   Citrus oil is a natural insect repellent and solvent. Cinnamon oil kills mosquito larvae. Vanilla bean repels flies, mosquitos and other insects.
This cleaner is so easy to make.  You can whip up a batch of this awesome stuff in about 5 minutes!  Give it a try!



Ingredients/Supplies: 4 oranges 2 cinnamon sticks 2 vanilla beans bottle of white vinegar 2 one-pint canning jars spray bottle
Directions: Peel the oranges and divide the peels between the two canning jars. Break the cinnamon sticks in half and add to jars.  Slit the vanilla bean and add to jars.  Pour the vinegar in each jar making sure to cover the peels.  Leave some headroom in each jar.  Put on the lids and…

That's A Lot of Chicken Poop!

Wow!  I never realized how much a chicken actually poops until we got chickens 4 years ago.  If you are planning on owning chickens in the near future, let me tell you, it's A LOT!  And for all those people who already own chickens I know you will agree with me.  Gail Damerow lays (no pun intended!) it all out there in  her book The Chicken Encyclopedia: An Illustrated Reference.

Good thing  you can put all that poop to good use by composting or manure tea!  Want more scoop on chicken poop?  Check out these articles from Lisa Steele
