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.

I made an entry...and got cut off by AOL..on DSL! I thought I was past all that.

I started to make another...and found out what I was talking about...was not linkable. DUH

So I am just going to keep this short and sweet today. ;)

How about a few pictures...thats always nice. Maybe I can come back later and talk about things without it all getting gummed up in the works.

This is a recent picture of Tiny. He is a sweet guy. He always stand behind the pool deck by the little tree waiting patiently at feeding time for me to come over with my bucket and pour food for him and a few others that hang out over there on that side. He follows right next to me all the way to the dish. He has always been very calm and sweet. Never wants to pick a fight, always the good guy. :)

He is beautiful Rooster. Very patient it seems. I get cut off of AOL on cable sometimes also. But it is still a lot better than dial-up. Watch out for the winter mix again tomorrow, I sure dread that colder air that will follow. Hugs, Helen

He sure is a beauty...and I didn't know chickens had "sides" too!   What is the world coming to!? lol  Anyway, I showed my hubby the video of the chickens carrying around that mouse and he was totally as amazed as I was lol.  We just wouldn't have imagined them to do that.  Glad you got  that on video!

Tiny is so cute.  

I have DSL and AOL has been very slow the past week or so I am glad it is free!  I use Firefox to upload my pictures at Flickr.com which AOL can then just pop them on faster.  

Have a great day!

Fern was having problems being cut off also.  I've had AOL troubles more than once this week, mostly with email.  I guess they're updating.

I had no idea that you raised and LOVE prized chickens!!! We are also toally interested in this lifestyle when we get out of this city they call "Sin City" (Las Vegas). LOL
I love the pictures so MUCH! And thank you from the bottom of my heart for always visiting my journal and posting sweet, kind and very encouraging comments. They mean everything to me right now. :)

You have a new "sister" in Vegas :).

He's beautiful!  Do you show your chickens.  If so, where?  
I'm sorry if I "know" this already.  My brain isn't what it used to be.  
I know you're gonna hate me for asking you this but do you ever eat them?

He's handsome, but doesn't look so "Tiny" to me.  He sounds like he has a great personality to boot.  Guess what...I am finally able to pet one of the roosters without having him try to flog me!!!  Thanks to your advice I am making progress.
