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 Wanted To Take This One Home

There are some birds, that I just instantly fall in love with. Not many, but some, you just want to take them home and love them and keep them for yourself. This guy was one of those.

He is a bantam Polish white roo. He stood oh I would say about about a foot and a half tall...give or take a few inches. I had a time taking is picture as he was looking all around, back and forth, this way and that way. He was just so handsome. Maybe I should have found out who he belonged to and asked to buy them. That is how I came to have Coco and Kuckoo. They were in the show last year...and the kid sold them to me. My regret about that is...he said he was getting out of polish and into giant cochins..so he was selling his whole flock of polish..and wanted to know if I wanted them. Should have said yes...should have.

Me thinks I am leaning toward a new favorite kind of bird...Polish, and Sultans...along with Giant Cochins. ;)

He would've been so hard to resist.  Don't we always kick ourselves when we look back in hindsite with our 20/20 vision?
