Cat, Pumpkin, and Witch; All signs of Halloween!

Many of you do not realize how hard it was to get this picture. Shadow was squirming and the pumpkins were trying to escape. Have a Happy Halloween!

Shadow and her shadow

When I was out in our yard I noticed Shadow acting in an odd manner. She was walking back and forth in front of a wall. Soon I found out she was investigating this character that was following her around. Here is the process of events that happened after;

"Hey, I think something's following me!"

"Yes, your right there... Don't try to hide!"
"I've got my eyes on you!"

"I'm just going to walk away, and you'd better not follow me!"

Feathered friend

Even though there were no chickens at Ocean shores, I still managed to find another feathered friend. This seagull decided to come and visit our condo for awhile. I was surprised how close he let me come. I was wondering what that red spot on his beak was. However, he appeared to be very photogenic.

Oceanic vacation

This weekend we went to Ocean Shores and had a great, relaxing time there. The chickens were tended to by our wonderful neighbors. It is good to be back doing homework, chores and going to bed early! Everything I love to do! Here is a picture of the sunset over the ocean. It looks better here than when I took it!

Thank you for keeping up with my blog! Be sure to add a comment once and a while too!

Squeaky clean coop!

I was overloaded with homework today, so mom got the difficult job of cleaning the coop. It requires a very special talent. Mom did a pretty good job, with some help from Jed and Charles.

Going home to roost

Everyone knows chickens go home to roost every night in their coop. However, as our chickens are, some of them do not do those traditional chicken duties. Survivor, for example, has been sleeping in the trees that are in the aviary.

Doc and I

This picture is a bit old, but it is still neat! It looks like it was about this time last year that it was taken. Doc looks the same! Me, on the other hand...

The new chickens; Rediscovered

I have not been taking very many pictures of the new chickens recently, so I thought I would go out into the coop and take some. The problem with taking pictures of the new chickens is that they are always moving so fast. It is hard to get a picture where they are not a blur. Here is a picture of Eagle Hawk-Eye. It isn't the best, but I did catch her as she was rounding a tree.

Who says chickens can't fly?

Did you know Richie is really a decorated Navy Pilot? Oh yes, General Peck was his title.Here is a picture of him flying a 757.

Jump on it! Jump on it! Jump on it!

Here are pictures of Charles and Doc attempting to escape from our aviary.They were successful, but I had them rounded up in no time!

Doc didn't make it out the first time, but she did the second time.

What's up, Doc?

The great chicken, Doc. She is really Dr. Seuss, but Doc is much friendlier. You would never guess that she and Richie were siblings(its true)! Doc is a very cute and trainable hen.

Friend of Shadow's

This is Oreo. He lives in Michigan, and while we were visiting there, he dropped by to say hello, and deliver a few letters to Shadow. In case you were wondering why his kitty tag is scribbled out, it is because we don't want any of you stalking him. He says he prefers a quiet life, and would like the identity of his owners to remain a secret.

Jazz it up with J.K.

J.K. is one of our original flock, and is a great layer of green/blue eggs. Here is a shot of her politely trying to escape. Chickens do that, you know. They pretend to be all happy and carefree, and then they shoot out the door. It is rather strange.
A fun fact for you all: J.K. Rowling (human one) makes more money a year than the Queen of England. Some of you might already know that, but I thought it was quite interesting.

Chicken chat

This is a picture of Charles and Jed sharing the latest chicken gossip. Rather short post today, but that is all I have to say!

How much cuter can you get?

That, my friends, is a picture of my favorite chicken, Charles. I do realize that I have been rather unfair on including some of our other chickens in the blogs, but what can I say? Charles is just awesome. That about sums it up! Have a great weekend!

Mr. High and Mighty

That's right. You guessed it. Who else would be "Mr. High and Mighty", but our own coop celebrity, Richard Peck! Here is another couple pictures of Richie ruling the roost, as we know it!

Richie thinking deep thoughts...

Hope you enjoyed those Richie photos! As Richie will tell you, "They're one of a kind!"

Nighty, night Chickens!

For those of you who have seen the video...

This is one of the people behind the scenes of the interview with Charles. She was the other commercial manager. Kind of random, but since she wasn't in the movie I thought she should get some credit for helping put it together.
In case you didn't notice, she is in disguise...
