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.

Would You Look At That!

Yesterday evening I opened up my email and had mail from Cristi, and she had sent me a picture from the  Newnan Times-Herald newspaper...asking me if this was my boy.

Out of over fifteen hundred birds, my Kuckoo got front and center at the top of the page...a whole page telling all about the show!

He may not have won the judges heart, but someone liked him and he took such a good picture for them!

I am so proud. :)

Cristi is sending me the page snail mail. I think I better get me a scrapbook to keep all my memories in of my shows!

WHOO HOO!! That might even be better than winning. Now everyone that reads that paper will see em whether they went to the show or not.
Yes you need a scrapbook.. surprised you don't have one already.
Take care, Chrissie

No pressure there on your next showing (winks)....Just shows someone thought your birds were indeed worthy of a mention. Never hurts to get extra exposure. (Hugs) Indigo

Definitely get the scrap book.  Nothing like a chicken nut(smile) having her very own featured front & center. Congrats. ~Mary
