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.

Some Cochin Action

I told you I spent most of the day outdoors before this rain hit that is really socked in. I took the camera out and sat with the cochins for a bit. They love the porch. :( The outdoors not so much. I think they like the outdoors, as long as I am out there with them. Soon as I left they went back up the stairs and into their little fenced off area. I got a mess to clean up.  Because they think it is nicer to be in the porch, but I dont want them to be in the porch. This weekend I will be making them some housing out in Derbys house...so I can clean up their porch area, which is, did I mention, a mess?



Do you see those two BAD chickens in the background? They are on the WRONG side of the fence...bad bad chickens.



Huh? Well...helloooo ladies!



Wait...let me show you my GOOD side...



or is THIS my good side? I dont know..I think I look pretty good at any angle. I mean just LOOK at me...who could resist?



I have to tell you though...we are not sure what to make of this big animal over there...he doesnt seem to want to eat us, so that is a plus, but he still makes us a little nervous if the human is not out here with us.



and now I will throw in a short video I took of them out in the yard...and Derby enjoying his dinner. :)

They are a beautiful pair of chicks. They will probably get used to you place in a few days and want to be out more. That wind was really blowing. Cute video of them and Derby. The rain has slacked off for a while here right now. I think they showed this area got 2.5 inches. That should bring the water level up some. Helen

You little male miniature looks a lot like our little miniature mare Snow Satin.  She is as fat as a turkey!!  She has spots on her. They get soooo spoiled! Cute pictures. Have a great day. Janie

Wow, they are really cool!  The third picture is awesome, she looks almost like a person standing there.  She needs little arms!  Great pics & I loved the video.  Another great entry, thanks for taking the time to share these with us.
