Welcome to Moose Head Homestead! My name is Stephanie and I love to homestead, live simply, be the best helpmeet and keeper at home I can be, grow in God's grace, and enjoy life. I also enjoy making handmade soap and hand-blended teas that I sell in our Etsy shop.
A good day!

My girls caught my attention this morning when they were overly excited by a tree in the back yard. I soon discovered what all the fuss was about...
There were tons of cicadas in various stages of development on the tree...*shiver* Here is one that is just emerging from it's old skin...
They are white when they first come out of their old skin.
Here is a bunch of the skins at the bottom of the tree.
The chickens were feasting on the smorgasbord of cicadas. They were happy as clams! All I can say is...YUCK!
