Well, now you all will know ... my obsessions with Chickens ... this is Really Why I want them!
Another space to create ... I have always believed that every Room in Every home should have something Living in it!
I happen to like CRITTERS!
If I needed a break, I could go live with them. I keep talking about down-sizing!!
Most people stick with a Plant. I like LIVING things ... besides the people!
So in order to have a Chicken "Beau Coop" ... I have to have the Chickens!!
But I'd really be okay with just the Beau Coop! Have you ever done something crazy as a means to an end? I really am going to stop myself on this one!!
I was on the way to meet with my photographer. I had a PLAN! We live in a town where cell phones don't always work. She was breaking up ... but what I derived from the conversation was ... I had fifteen minutes. Lucky for me ... my good friends Laurie and Jim live right around the corner. They are my Nature Heroes!
They rescued some horses about a year ago. Then they built the barn. Then they got some chickens.
The last (first) time I saw some of these fluff balls it was on the Velvet and Linen Blog ... do you know Brooke and Steve? They are quite an AMAZING team!!
California has the weather and I couldn't believe that we could have the same chickens in New England. And the fact that these precious little things are really like pets. They come when you call them!! My dogs don't even do this!!
Please note how precious these chickens are ( NOT the GREIGE roots in my part ... it has been a long month!) and the fact that you have to use two of their eggs to equal one of our standard farm eggs ... I am okay with that!
This guy is showing a little strut power! ... his feet were a little creepy ...
My sweet friends are going hatch and sell some of the silkie chicks for $15.00 each. I am in the market. I really don't need any more animals (people) to take care of ...
One of my Ya Ya's gave me this little quote ...
Keep in touch over the next few weeks to see if I bite the bullet and say ... What the Hell?
Is there anything in your world that has you kickin' your heels to the wind and going for it?
I'd love to know!!
