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.

Everyone is Sitting Sitting and More Setting




Trying once again, Nick and Nack are sitting on two eggs. With pigeons, they only lay two and then they incubate. They take turns too, isnt that sweet? I wish them much success.



I found this sneaky gal nesting on about 23 or so eggs a couple of weeks ago. Guess we are going to have some little keets running about. She gets off the nest for one short period during the day, but I havent been able to catch her off so I can take a picture of all the eggs. Only once did I catch her off, and that was during all the company July 4th weekend and I didnt get a shot of it. She is a good guinea mama, very protective of her nest.

One of my C Serama hens is broody and was sitting on about six eggs but has kicked three to the curb. I guess she knows which ones are bad. I don't really want anymore C Seramas right now, but just a couple won't hurt anything, and it makes her so happy.

Those pigeons look so cute. I hope nothing gets your guinea setting on those eggs. You would think she needs water on these hot days. Good luck to all of them. Hugs, Helen
