For the love of chickens

I know I said I got my hens for their eggs but really, they provide much more than food. They are hilarious and provide hours and hours of entertainment. Seriously. I'm really one of those people that used to find it pretty silly for people to call their chickens "girls" and "my flock" but I think I've been bitten by the fowl bug and now count myself as one of those "people." My evening entertainment (oh my, I can't believe I'm admiting this ... ) is to let the hens roam around the yard while I sit with Kanoe to watch the scratching and squawking goings on. If you suffer from high blood pressure like I do, this is THE PERFECT stress relief! So, in lieu of meds, take two hens and call me in the morning!!!!

PS: Sorry about the dark photos on my blog so far. I leave the house early and get home late so it's usually late when I can take pics.


  1. The hens and dog are so cute! I's love to get a few chickens, and other farm animals someday as well. Thank you for posting.

  2. Thanks Alexandra! OMG, they are so cute. I'm serious. You wouldn't think that chickens are cute but they ARE! My friend kid me because both my dog and my chickens are fluffy. LOL
