Today my family and our neighbors are going camping. This is a picture I took last year from our favorite spot.

We will be gone until Tuesday, so see you then!

Jungle Gym

The younger chickens really enjoy playing on the wood pile, and there are some loose boards so it is fun to watch them jump around them. This is a shorter video(a bit boring) of the chickens playing around it.

Future videos will be more interesting!

What to expect for this week~

This week I am going to try something a little different. Each day I will post a thirty second video of life in the coop. Actually all the videos take place in our yard somewhere. All of them are quite entertaining. I will leave you with a pic of Rosalynn

Belated Fireworks~

I took quite a few pictures of the fireworks in Michigan, but I was unable to post them at the time. What was really amazing was that I got to light off four! I have never done that before so it was pretty cool. Here are a few pictures of fireworks from the official show.
^I love this picture^

Some kitten pals~

One of our friends in Michigan got three kittens and we saw them while we were there. My cousins and I got to name a few of them too. The kitten pictured below is Gracie. She was hiding under a propane tank when I got this picture. Kind of random, but she was.
This is Macho Taco. I named it Salad first, but then they changed it to Macho Taco. They are both really weird names, but I still like salad better.
Here is Gracie again..My sister wanted to name this one Millie, but it got changed to Twiggy. Here is my beloved Salad again...
The kittens were very entertaining for us while we were in Michigan. When we go back next year they will be all grown up.

Earl picniked~

My cousin's chickens are free range, so they have a wide range of areas to strut. I wish our chickens could be free range, but we have to many raccoons and other predaters in our area.

Back from vacation...

I have been in Michigan for the last two weeks which was a lot of fun. My cousins have chickens now and I took a few pictures of them while I was there.

This rooster's name is Earl. He is surprisingly good natured(unlike Richie) and is a Black Australorp. He does get mad if you throw scraps at him which I didn't... It was a great vacation that even involved some chickens. And a side note, I went to see Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince with my friend yesterday and it was amazing! I would highly recommend it!
