Feathers

16 Aug

It’s that time of year when the peacocks start losing their tail feathers.

Every time I go out there, I’m picking up a handfull.

Soon they will be naked!

They’re still beautiful even when they don’t have their long tails.

Lazy Days of Summer

I have been quite busy this summer, but everyone else around here seems to be taking it easy this summer.

Crazy Birds

24 May

I have a couple of birds with crazy ideas.  One of my hens has decided to be a free-range chicken.  That’s all fine and dandy until she decides to go into the yard. I’m pretty sure Sky would like to play with her. I’m also pretty sure, she would make a tasty treat for him.  So far, she’s stuck to the barnyard.

Widow Goose has decided to sit on a nest and hatch eggs.

I worked hard to fish all her eggs out from under the pen where Mama Phoenix is and get rid of them.

It didn’t stop her.  She’s now sitting on a nest beside the pen.  I don’t even know if she has an egg in it now.  I tried telling her that she hasn’t been near a gander in  months and nothing will come of sitting on those eggs, but she doesn’t care.

In case you didn’t figure it out, Mama Phoenix is still eating and doing well.  Don’t ask me how.

Again, I have no reason to share the peacocks, but they are handsome.

Enjoy!
