About Me

My photo
I am a 42 year old woman that is about as happy and content as one person can be. My husband of 21 years and our 15 year old daughter live on five and a half acres out in the country. We moved from the city four years ago and never looked back. I homeschool our daughter. We also love our animals. Our daughter has a miniature horse and two rabbits. We also have a border collie, two cats (again), two pot belly pigs, four peafowl, three emus, 2 llamas and an undetermined number of chickens, lets just say ohhh about 200. I have many breeds, from layers to fancy chickens. I love poultry shows, I love fowl in general as I have come to find out through having more than just chickens. Chickens will always be my first love though. I do show some of my birds occasionally.

Monday Photo Shoot

Todays Photo Shoot from John Scalzi is to show a picture of something or someone lounging..so here is my contribution to taking it easy. :)

I knew what picture to use just as soon as I went to Johns Journal and found out what the Monday Photo Shoot topic was.

Here is a picture of our pet house chicken Phoenix and my daughter lounging out on the screen porch together. When I asked her why she was torturing him by holding him in such an awkward position she informed me that she was not restraining him at all but merely holding him in place...all the while Phoenix is giving me a look like "Hey, can't a rooster relax around here?"

To prove that she was not restraining him she let go of him, and there he lay, kicked back with not a care in the world, not even a twitch to get up. Spoiled rotten. :)

I would like to throw in a few lounging pig pictures from the Georgia National Fair we attended this past Friday..they sure look tuckered out.
