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.

Zoo pictures, Flamingos

Friday was Ians 41st birthday. He took the day off and we all went to the Atlanta Zoo. We havent been since Shelby was a toddler. The weather has just been perfect every day and Friday was warm and sunny. Two of my favorite things.

We didnt get to see everything. We got there later than we wanted to, but thats okay. Leaves something to go back and see.

This entry will be the first of a series of all the photos I took from our visit. Today I am going to post two short videos of the flamingos and a few pictures. The keeper was filling their little cove with water and they are filing down getting ready for the water and sifting through the water for the food the keeper throws in.

I hope youi enjoy them. :)


I know I havent been here much to post. I will be taking pictures of the emus, all those babies, and plenty more through the week. I have an unusual situation I want to capture on video to show. We are letting Derby out to graze a couple of hours a day now. When we let him out, the emu babies flock to him and hover around him constantly, eating grass with him. I think they think he is Mama! ;) Its cute to see though.

They are gorgeous!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO IAN!!!!  Going to the zoo sounds like a perfect way to spend a birthday.  How odd the little Emus think Derby is their momma, i can't wait to see that video.  It's good to see an entry...I miss you & your gang when you don't post often.

Before I read the comments I thought they look artificial. Now I see others thought that too. I thought of the plastic pink ones some put in their yard that my son-in-law hates. My daughter said she was going to put 40 of them in their yard for his birthday. She didn't she did something else. Happy belated birthday to Ian. Love the pictures. Paula

I am so far behind on journals it's not even funny.  Sorry for so much silence from me, but I'm just coming out of it, so to speak.
That sounds like a good time you all had.  I hope to take Katie and go this summer.  Loads of things I'd like to do this summer.  Great pics as always.
