Chickens Can Be A Lot Like Children

Justin's Valentine gift to me was a "Life is better with chickens around" tee, from Ruby's Rubbish on Etsy. And I LOVE it.
Once the shirt arrived, and it was a warm enough day to wear it, I decided it would be a wonderful opportunity for a self photo shoot with my girls.
And well, this photo shoot allowed me to see that chickens, are A LOT like children.
How are they like children? Well, because on most days, snapping a photo with them is an easy thing. They LOVE getting in my lap, or my shoulder.
 So long as it does not interrupt outside the coop time.
A.K.A. playtime
After a bit of coaxing...

I managed to get two of them to allow me to hold them.
As children do, one showed it's personality of being a complete camera hog...

 And the other tried with all their might to find a way to wiggle down to get back to those bugs she just discovered under that leaf pile...

Oh, and like children, jealousy may occur time to time in chickens...

But they are all loved equally. :)
Have a wonderfully blessed day everyone! thanks for stopping by!


  1. I love your chickens! They have such great colorings. Oh, and what a cute shirt to have!

    1. Thank-you Tiffany! I have always loved the coloring of Dominiques and Plymouth Barred Rocks. The black and white barring is so pretty. :D

  2. great photos! I've heard chickens all have such diddefen personalities, too. just out of curiosity : are your hens meat or egg birds?

    1. Thanks Cristina! I have these girls for eggs. But this breed (Dominique and Plymouth Bared Rock) are considered dual purpose. They are excellent layers, but do plump up nicely for meat. :)

  3. I am loving your short hair! You have the perfect face to pull it off! It is amazing what a blessing the animals in our lives can be :)

    1. Thank-you Amy! GOD has given us such a gift in the animals in our life. And I never thought I would say it, but I love the short hair too.I plan to keep it short for awhile. It's so much fun! :D


Well hello there! Thanks for stopping by! I LOVE to hear from you all out there. Just please remember to keep everything kind and Christ-like. In the words of that wise papa rabbit, "If you can't say something nice, don't say nothing at all". :)
