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.

Peanut Doll, Cuddly Chickens


OHHH MY! Christmas may be here at the door after all!

This morning I opened my email and found this header.

Package Shipped To You From JeffDunham.com


That means I got in! You see, I have a habit of keeping sites on a whim on my favorites. I went and clicked on one from his site I had saved and it just happened to be the order page for Peanut, and even though it was NOT on the current updated Store page, I had it, so I ordered it anyway.

I checked, and since then they have fixed it. Says SOLD OUT and has a dollar amount of 0.00, and on the Store page it says SOLD OUT, WILL SHIP APRIL 2008.

So I beat the system maybe???

I went and checked...hee hee, it is a two pound package. I bet it is the Peanut doll.

I am just so excited! Now if it will just get here before Christmas, wouldnt that be SOMETHING!


It has been COLD here the past few days. The little chickens don't handle it too well. The breeder/show Serama have heat lamps on them so they can keep warm. Phoenix, Bonnie and Clyde get to come in when it gets dark, but it is getting so cold I think I am going to have to accomodate them with heat lamps in their pens on the porch too.

Saturday evening when we got home from getting our Christmas tree (in the rain of course) Shelby was feeling motherly. She said the poor babies were cold and needed to come in right then. She got their apple juice and wheat bread for them, brought them all in. (It was pretty cold)

After everyone had had their meal Phoenix was the first to come to her and she wrapped him up in her coat. He seemed very cozy and content.

Next Bonnie followed, so she wrapped herup in another section of her coat.

I asked her what she was going to do when Clyde came up for a snuggle as it didnt look like there was going to be any more room in that coat.

She simply replied that she would rearrange them all and they would fit. I figured once she jostled everyone about they would get restless and the spell would be broken, but I was wrong.

She is as much a Chicken Whisperer as I am. ;)

Here are a few cute pictures I took of all these goings on.

Ohhh look somebody is getting SLEEPY up above.

Bonnie getting snuggled in and warm below...




All three below...can you see Bonnie, she is on the far left.



Believe it or not, Clyde and Phoenix 'get along' pretty good now. Clyde has no interest in fighting Phoenix. Sometimes Phoenix will gingerly walk over and steal Clydes piece of bread, but Clyde is the bigger man and moves on to another piece. Phoenix still tries to win the favor of Bonnie. Last night he danced for her once, but she just balked at him and complained. She tolerates him as best she can I guess. ;)


One more thing I wanted to add...

We are still walking and I weighed at Mama and Daddys Sunday when I went over to pick them up.

(We went to visit Grandmama)

Well, I lost two pounds since we started. Not too bad, not too bad at all!


Okay, lol, I know that the doll is kind of "ugly". I didnt want anyone to think I actually thought it was cute, BUT with that said, if you saw the puppet, the real Peanut, you would understand the doll.

Has anyone ever seen Jeff Dunhams routine? You can go to YouTube and watch Spark of Insanity, the whole special that was on Comedy Central. Funny stuff. Be warned, there is some language, nothing severe, but there is some language.


Peanut, Walter, Jose Jalepeno, and Jeff of course.

I had no idea chickens could be cuddly!

I am so excited about that doll coming in. I hope it gets here before Christmas too.  No he's not cute but it's what she wants.  I don't think I've seen the act before even though WALTER was familiar so maybe I have.  I'll go on YOUTUBE when Dirk gets home with the wireless computer.

Great about the Peanut doll.  I'm so happy for you, & also for your weight loss.  Great JOB!!! I love the pictures of Shelby with the chicks.  It's just so amazing seeing chicks behave in this manner.  I guess I'm just use to seeing them in a pen.  I love the one of Phoenix asleep.  Adorable.

Well the pictures of Shelby with the gang are just adorable, what a good little chicken mama you have raised!  Clearly she is going to follow in your footsteps.  Bless their little hearts, getting all wrapped up like that.  I am so happy to hear you got your doll - that is great, I am happy for you.  I have never seen or heard of jeff Dunham - I am going to have to check him out.

PS)  Congrats on the weight loss!!!  Good Job! :)
