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.

Thelma and Louise

P2170064

"Hey...hey you out there...how about giving a bird a hand here...I am ready to fly this coop!" says Louise.

 

P2170067

Thelma seems distracted by something on the cage floor...hmmm...I dont know how she can see anything, let alone something on the cage floor...lol.

*****************

The silkies are judged in categories of color. There were some blacks, buffs, and the whites there. There are usually more whites, but this time it was just my two girls and one roo.

With a choice of three, the judges put Thelma in first place, Louise in second place, and the roo of someone elses in third. Thelma won best variety of the three. So good marks for them.

I was trying to take some pictures of them at home...before they got dirty...once again, the weather was not at all cooperative as I mentioned. Today is not any better. You wouldnt believe the WIND we are having. Sounds like we are going to blow away today!
