Remember When I Said There Are 2 Things ...

that I always long for this time of the year ..well as you remember the first was a greenhouse..but the other is chickens!

This is the season for adorable baby chicks.

..that grow up into some of the most interesting characters..

..but without a sufficient hen house, any chickens we would have would be taken by a rather large hawk population we have in our area.

Okay - so I had to laugh when I saw this picture. I LOVE details, but don't think that any hen house we may own in the future will include a fancy light fixture like this one!

..but Oh - the bounty!

G'morning, sorry i've not been by in awhile. We've been so busy around here and I've fallen behind in visiting.
Fist off, how is your handsome hunk doing? I hope he is feeling lots better. Tell him hi for me and that anytime he wants to be a PINK SATURDAY HUNK again, all he has to do is send me a photo of himself....WEARING PINK!! lol

My daughter wants some chickens so so bad. She, too, has to have a hen house first. Hoping she can get one soon. Now, if she sees this photo, she is gonna want a chandy for her chicken house, too! haha..cute!!

We have lived here on our farm for 13 years and I have always wanted chickens. But so far no chickens, we got cows first, then came the horse and now a donkey. years ago on another farm we had chickens and ducks, wonderful eggs to cook with; I miss them.
Fancy light in the chicken house, NOT! It sure won't stay clean for long! LOL

Oh, I want some baby chicks. And a miniature donkey too. Strange dreams for someone in the middle of the suburbs!

Hi Julie,
Love your blog and animals.Been here before but couldn't leave message.
Embarrassed to admit I finally left e-mail,however computer went to default mode and left husband's e-mail address instead.You ended up e-mailing him and he was soooo confused.
Good news! Bought my very own computer this past weekend.
Long time writer, brand new blogger.I pray my memory is correct but I believe you said you had been told you over-share.Your response was you wrote from the heart.A kindred spirit!! That's the only way I know to write. That is the only way to find your own truth. I pray my poor memory is firing today. If not, well I've made a fool of myself with you twice.Good thing I learned long ago
how to laugh at myself!
Would love for you to visit me at
Terri Baker
