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.

Good Friday Sunny Afternoon


I am late late late today...but better late than never. Enjoying the sunshine today? They are. :)

We had some good thunderstorms roll through here last evening. I heard tale from someone at Walmart that there was a tornado touched down somewhere up there in Rome where we were yesterday evening. Havent heard any more about it though.

Thirsty? Daisy has a whole pail of fresh water...



I got a phone call from Karen. Her sister is moving from her country home to a house near where I used to live. She can't keep her three hens and her guinea and wanted to know if I would take them. She wanted them to go to a good home and knew I would be just that. The guinea is a white one, and is a girl, so that is good. I have two boys and one girl now, so the girl will be welcome. Her sister doesnt know the breed of the three chickens, just the color, but I suspect it is a Rhode Island Red, a Buff Orpington or Golden Comet, and I know the last one is an Americauna. That is what Daisy is. Most are brown, like the one you saw in the picture with Everett the other day. They lay green and blue eggs. I have lost a couple of my Americaunas, so I especially welcome her. Karens sister also has a large hutch that no longer has legs that I would like to have. We will see if I can get that. I will have to take the old truck to pick that up. She is moving this weekend so that means my weekend of doing nothing and going nowhere has had a change of plans. I did it to myself though..cant very well let those poor chickens and guinea go homeless can I? ;)


I tried and tried to get that video to load yesterday, but it kept stopping, wouldnt play through, so I put it on Youtube...if it works I will add it onto a seperate entry.

I hope everyone is having a good Friday. :)
