One September Day

Here a chick... There a chick.. Everywhere a...

Chick... chick!!

OK.. I will be the 1st to admit it..
Our family IS a little eccentric.
some would even go as far as to say...
VERY eccentric.

It is time to pace our order for baby chicks again.
We could incubate some eggs..
Maybe we will again.
But for a large quantity of healthy meat chickens,.. that are fed organic feed, and are also free-range..
then.. we will order them in large quantities.

Egg-Layers are also great for ordering as well.

If you are able to consider raising some chickens,, and have a great spot for a healthy adventure like this..
Then..
WHY NOT!?

Here are some pictures of our chicken adventures..
ENJOY!

Wheel-barrow Races  - I told you we were eccentric!



How many families find a chicken on their roof!   We do!!!



And leave it to Sarah.. to rescue the chickens off of the roof!

    Do you know how much I love that post? HA! I love that post. You know weird and wonderful go together beautifully. Oh wait, I mean... eccentric.

    I want you to move to Kansas. I want to be able to come and help you get those chickens off of your roof. Sounds like a blast!! One time Truman, our trusty Golden Retriever, found his way to the roof of an old chicken house. ha! He followed something up there and didn't know how to get down. Imagine a 70 pound dog on a roof that was ready to cave in! Yikes! Funny though.

    Love you Em.

    I always loved the chicks my grandparents had when I was a little girl. We would chase after them in the yard trying to get our hands on one without any success. It's funny how seeing your little chick reminded me of that time. Thanks for a walk back in time. God bless!

    I have to laugh at the chickens on the roof! That was just too funny!

    You and Lynnette have so much in common. I am allergic to chickens...and even if I wasn't, I'm afraid of them...so ya wouldn't find me rescuing them from the roof! Ha!

    Life in the country is never dull huh? *smile*

    Love you,
    Linda

    Ahhh....makes me miss home!! NO chickens where we are now, and even if we did have chickens, I think our dogs would make sure they got lots of exercise!
