Evicting the Kitchen Chicken

With all the kids that I was bringing into the house, I was really starting to feel like I was truly living in a barn.  Something had to change.

Honey was in agreement.  She was a bit nervous, to the point of puffing up her neck feathers, with all the kids bouncing around.  I took her back out to the coop to be with the rest of the chickens.

I was reallly amazed that there wasn’t fighting and trying to kill her.  She just settled right back in.

Of course, after living in the house, she might have illusions of grandeur.  She was basking with the peahens.

Finally, just because he’s handsome, I have to include the peacock.

St. Paddy’s Day SHS

This week was a wonderful collection of St. Patrick’s Day prompts for Scavenger Hunt Sunday.  I loved it!  It would have been better if we weren’t still being sucked into mud with every step, but we did pretty good.  The prompts:  lucky, Irish, daylight, pot of gold, and clover.

You can decide which picture goes with which prompt.

Is it just me or does it look like she’s had a few too many green beers?

Okay, the next two are obviously for pot of gold.  That one was a bit more difficult, but I did it!  I’ve called my corn Iowa gold before, so that works.  I usually call the container a cauldron. If you want to be truthful, it’s probably an old chamber pot.  Hey!  She didn’t tell us what kind of pot it had to be.

No leprechauns!  Only chickens here.

Muddy

I know I shouldn’t complain about our weather with all the horrible blizzard conditions out east, but most of the animals here are not fans of our muddy weather.

We’ve been damp and then rainy most of the weekend.

I guess my lone little buff duck is enjoying it.

I don’t know what she was trying to find, but she sure was scratching and digging in that puddle.
