Chickens, chickens, chickens, all day, every day!

No joke, I think I took 250 chicken photos this afternoon. The joy of digital cameras! I won't inflict them all on you at once, but this will get you started.

Lazing on a Sunday afternoon!

Treat time!

I think this is Cupcake. Unless it's Ellie. Or Claudia!

This is what we do for fun on a hot Sunday afternoon around here!

Mucho fluffy-ass!

A boy and his birds. That's Chicky grabbing treats from Gordon's hand. Poor Chicky is at the absolute bottom of the pecking order, and she has the ratty feathers to prove it. The other girls peck at her, but at least they aren't drawing blood.

Zombie chickens ate our brains, but we died happy.


  1. Ahhh, looks like a good day! I spent a lot of time with my chickens today, too! It was a good chicken day!

  2. You have a Claudia there? Bilingual? Blissful environment, and very safe for the chickens. No poacher around I hope.

  3. Natalie - I love your humor! Great photos!! You are making me want I'll need to go ask the hubby!

  4. Ahh what a sweet set of photos. Gordon is clearly a chick magnet!

  5. Oh yes, Claudia, I forgot to tell you! Last year, my friend's son named two of our chicks "Duck" and "Goose". But this year he decided he wanted to change their names to "Nadia" and "Claudia". So now there's a hen here with the honour of sharing your name! We'll keep her safe from poachers. The girls are only allowed out to free-range when we are out with them.

  6. Lynn, I find that if I'm feeling cranky or down, I just need to go spend a few minutes with the chickens to lift my spirits. Those girls always make me happy!

  7. Jams, Gordon will be thrilled to hear he's a chick magnet. Hahaha!

    Shelley, you NEED chickens. Tell hubby I said so. :)


Thank you for all your comments, which I love to read!
