Vacation cat

I recently recovered my other camera chip and I found a lot of old pictures from October that I hadn't posted yet. Here is the cat we kept seeing while on vacation. Her name is Oreo. You may remember her from the post Friend of Shadow's

More cats

I seem to be into posting about cats lately. Here is another close cat friend, of whom I can not reveal the name. He is a very cute little cat as you will see from the pictures. He also lives in Michigan, I might add.

All cats need some time to chill.

He has a good buddy too!


This comic expresses what most turkeys wish before Thanksgiving. The chickens are very relieved that they have survived yet another Thanksgiving feast!

Thanksgiving Comeback!

Today we went out and checked for eggs and were blown away because there was five eggs, FIVE! I think the chickens are just showing us they are happy that they aren't the ones in the pot!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

J.K.; Chicken of many words

J.K. is probably named after the most famous author of our flock. She is a remakable bird and is always either eating or posing for pictures. J.K lays blue eggs and is of the Auracauna variety.

Little Richie!

This video still makes me laugh! Richie has gotten better at crowing since this was taken.

Two years that flew by!

Here are a few pictures of the chickens when they were younger. These are about when they were three months old. They were just beginning to et there feathers. You can still see all the chick fluff on their heads though! They grow up so fast! Julia is standing on the feeder and Pearl is standing on the water can.
Jasper and Julia anre looking at the camera.

That would be Pearl. She sure made some mischief!

Jasper and Julia again.

Somebody's hungry!

Here is a movie of some hungry chickens. I just cleaned the coop and fed them, so they are pretty excited in this video. The movie is kind of long, so you don't have to watch the whole thing! This movie stars Julia, Lemony, Jasper and Doc.

Monalisa ready for summer!

Monalisa is a great art portarit and has nothing to do with chickens. Yes, I have realized this, but I thought this would be better than not posting. Here is a photoshop I did with the Monlisa. I also did one with a friend's face.

Our Immaculate coop!

Do you like my word choice? I thought I would say something other than "Our clean coop". In the picture you can see our tidy walls behind Charles. That job is very long, but worth it. It is always nice when people don't flinch when they walk in! The chickens will sleep well tonight!

Photogenic chicken

Survivor is one of those where, you just know she will make a great photo. Here is an example of that ability: I may have explained this before, but just in case I didn't I will tell you how Survivor got her name. We adopted her from a family that was going away for awhile. Before we got her they let her run free. They named her Survivor because at night she flew into trees and escaped wild animals. All their other chickens died from the animals except Survivor. That's the story! We are proud to have her as a part of our flock.

A Chicken Dream

If chickens had dreams(which maybe they do, I don't know) this is what it would look like:

Chickens love anything ot scratch and peck in.

Movie stars!

Yes, our chickens are now movie stars! Only Pearl and Charles are, actually. We were filming a movie for a school project, and those two chickens are a major part in it. Here is a picture of the two movie stars:

Happy Feet

You may have wondered why Shadow never picks on the chickens. One reason is her feet are at least 3 times smaller than the chickens. There are many other reasons, but I thought I would take that oppurtunity for a picture.

Pearl: A strange bird to say the least!

I do love Pearl! She is a great bird to have around. You will see a shot of her plumage and other strange pictures. Pearl reflecting on another good day in the coop.

Beautiful plumage!

Well, Hi!Good ole Pearl!

Good Haul this Year!

I am donating half of it to my mom's work, because I won't be able to eat all of it!
