  5. My Grandma has chickens and I help her with them when I go and stay. I really like the goats in your banner picture aswell. From Findlay

      Thanks, Findlay. I really enjoy having all the animals here.

    These are all so beautiful. I am wondering if you have names for all of them like you do the goats 🙂

    • Teresa November 12, 2013 at 6:10 pm #

      There’s only a couple of birds with names. It’s too hard to tell them apart.

    Great variety! I really love the pretty peacock! And the geese and chickens are cute! Great photos.

      Thanks, Eileen.

    I love the happy duck face! Please tell me your chicken isn’t really green though! 😉

      The hen is a barred rock-black and white. Don’t know why the color is off.

    Beautiful birds, but I think the peacock steals the show with those brilliant colours.

    • Teresa November 13, 2013 at 6:49 am #

      Yes, he is a very flashy guy, even though he’s just starting to grow his tail feathers back in.

    I very much like these closeups, Teresa. Super!

    • Teresa November 13, 2013 at 10:10 am #

      Thanks. I sometimes forget how pretty my domestic birds are.

  11. Pat November 13, 2013 at 12:28 pm #

    Love the gossiping goose trio!

    • Teresa November 13, 2013 at 12:39 pm #

      They were funny. I don’t usually see them in that building, so I don’t know what they were checking out.

    I used to have a great place to go visit birds until I moved. I haven’t found another cool place like that yet.

    • Teresa November 13, 2013 at 5:09 pm #

      I am really lucky to just walk out my back door to find all these great birds. Hope you find somewhere to visit them again.

    Classy types of birds. 🙂

    Hi Teresa. Great bird with lots around you. I love the Peacock. Such a beautiful bird

    • Teresa November 14, 2013 at 7:48 am #

      They really are beautiful with all their variety. Getting to know them all, I have to say, I think the ducks are my favorites.

  15. John November 15, 2013 at 12:44 pm #
