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.

View From The Roof

Ha! You thought I couldnt do it! But I did! Okay, maybe I wasnt exactly on the roof, but if you open Shelbys bathroom window you could climb right out onto the roof.

These pictures suck...as I cant get past the screen, but you can kinda see...I hope.

I was asked do I have a chicken coop. Well, yes and no. I have a chicken house, inside a chain link fenced area and two laying shelter thingie houses. The fence is always open. Then I have an extra pen to catch the overflow of chickens that dont fit in the original house I built. You can see several pens..covered with gray heavy duty tarp. We get a lot of wind out here so they need lots of shelter to get in out of the wind.

Ian is currently building me another chicken house. He has the frame done, but the weather hasnt been condusive to working on it...but it will come in handy if I get more layers.

I have other pens, breeding pens...on the other side of the house too.

LOL! CLEARLY I'm going to have to think of something more challenging to keep you occupied.

That is really neat...and smart idea to add tho's tarps over top!   I bet they stay nice and warm in there.
