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.

Last Pictures From Show, See Y'all Monday

Here are the last pictures from the Poultry show...first up is a Bantam Gold Neck D'Uccle...



Next is a Bantam Porcelain D'Uccle....I think thats what he is...



This here below is a Bantam Cochin roo...



Next is a Standard sized Silver Spangled Hamburg rooster...he is like my Everett...Everett is a SSH, but still so young and not filled out like this handsome man.



and last but not least was my personal favorite that was there...after the show his owner was packing up and I told him what a stunning beautiful bird he had. I asked if I could hold him, and he said,

"Of course, and he is very tame."

I hugged on him, snuggled him...oh how I wanted him...he was soooo sweet! I know the second shot is of his rear, but I wanted you to see how long those tail feathers are...they were sticking through the top of the pen!

This is where I get my love for the Serama..you see...Seramas are a mixed breed, one of the breeds in the mix is the Japanese Bantam.

Well, thats it...I hope you liked the pictures of some of my favorites from the show. :)


Ian is going to a new schedule for a while. He will be working longer hours during the week...and taking whole weekends off. I am very happy about this because now Friday actually means something around here! It means the start of a whole weekend together. Soon we will be spending our weekends gardening. Him moreso than me...I am not very good at it. I stick to growing tomatoes. I did can and freeze a whole bunch of stuff he grew last year...we still have squash from last year in the freezer, and about four jars of pickles left. I personally like to grow tomatoes. So that is what I do...tomatoes and chickens. :)

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and I hope it is going to be warm and sunny wherever you are!

With the great weather I am sure to have some video and pictures from the weekend to share come Monday. See y'all then. :)

Nothing like a fresh tomato except maybe an onion with it. The pretty chickens have pretty names to go with them. Paula

They are so pretty.  Makes me wish my father were still around so that I could show him your pictures.  He above all people would love it and be able to discuss it with me intelligently.  I am looking forward to gardening again.  My tomatoes grew the best last year.  And my cucumbers.

The last one had gorgeous tail feathers. Ugh! With more snowfall this morning, as well as more on the way tonight here in NY....Spring is nowhere close to arriving here. As for gardening. In recent years I would grow 3 different varieties of tomatoes, squash, chili peppers and red peppers. I didn't last year because it seemed like a waste. I can't seem to ever do anything small. There is only Doc and I here and I'm not much for canning (Did that for years with my mother and don't relish those memories).....

I tend to use my green thumb for flower gardens. Perhaps this year I'll put up a few pictures of what I've grown. (Hugs) Indigo

I like the silver spangled rooster. Are they expensive to buy? Can't afford to get high priced chickens if something is going to eat them. We are going to try again this spring. I saw the prettiest red shouldered hawk today flying. That may be what got my Henny and Penny last year. Hope not.

Wishing you a great weekend. Nice pictures, thanks for sharing. Janie

Wow those are some long tail feathers!  I planted a whole mess load of veggies in my garden last year and not a one survived.  Will try again this year.
