To kick off the new year, I thought it would be fun to recap the Top Ten Chicken Post on our Blog from 2012. So, without further ado, here are the top ten most-read posts:

#1 Got Flies? DIY Fly Catcher - The most popular post was a tutorial on making your own fly catcher to keep readers' runs fly-free.

#2 Make your own Feed Bag Tote - Empty feed bags re-purposed into tote bags was the second most popular post. Even if you only posses basic sewing skills, my easy tutorial walks you through sewing your own.

#3 Make your own Apple Cider Vinegar - Apple cider vinegar has great health benefits to humans and chickens alike. Readers were very interested in learning how to make their own.

#4 Nesting Box Herbs - Chicken Aromatherapy - One of my very first posts last January, this article on adding herbs to your nesting boxes to calm setting hens and provide health benefits as well as impart a pleasant aroma to your coop was extremely popular.

#5 Orange Peel White Vinegar Coop Cleaner - My recipe for this all natural vinegar-based coop cleaners was extremely popular.

Lisa, it is kind of fun to look back over the blogs written during the last year. I like to do that just to get a perspective of how much has been accomplished. It doesn't seem like much but after my year end review, it all added up to allot. Now that has reset and another year has begun. It will be fun to see what accomplishments happen this year. Have a great last year reflective day.
