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.

Rods Bathtime and Blowdry

P2140006 P2140007

Poor pitiful soul. He hangs his head in shame. He went limp on me, just flopped his head down, wouldnt stand up...you would have thought I killed him with a BATH. ;)

He was a good sport about it. The drier he got the better he felt. Here are some videos of his blowdry session. You can see in the first one he is crouching down still, not happy...next one, a bit dryer...and the last one is the best one of them all...he was so patient...never tried to get away from me...you can see I am not holding him at all.

He is now in his own comfy box with shavings and food and water...just got to keep them all clean til the show.

I had that same dryer!  It blew up and sparked while we were staying in our trailer.

My Princess (dog) loves to be blown dry but hates to be wet!  They are so much like little kids aren't they?

Thats to cute. He feels pretty there towards the end. Thanks for sharing that I've never seen chickens have a bath and blow dry before. I need some beauty shop attention like that.
Take care, Chrissie

He was very well behaved. Didn't act scared at all. Bet he will cocky all the rest of today. Helen

He's a real drama queen isn't he.....Awww that was too cute. I never realized how upset they would get about not looking good. (Hugs) Indigo

Kelly, I have never seen anything like this before!  It's like with each video he got his confidence back a little more.  I can't believe how he just stood there for you to blow him dry.  Your chicken are just amazing!
