chicken lover

strings attached

the babies are getting so big. maybe, it was the whitetrashsocializing for two weeks in my house, but chickens are just dang sweet. they fly up to perch on your shoulder, back or elbow and leave you to take photos cockeyed below.

Oooh...look at those lovies! I just found out we can have 3 chickens in our back yard. I'm thinkin' on it. Now that I know we can though - I'm getting cold feet.

love you, chicken-lover.

So how do the cat's like the new additions? :) We can have chickens in the city just not roosters, but we have wild predators from the forest behind so not a good idea for us. Our friends who live more in town have a chicken tractor that they move around the yard (ex. http://urbanchickens.org/gallery/tractor-inspired-drawing-here-another-view)
Love your hens.

oh, so cute! i remember a long time ago i held some chickens like babies and thought it was adorable how they fell asleep in my arms. then the farmer came out and yelled at me for making her chickens pass out. apparently they can't breathe on their backs. there were no fatalities, thank goodness... just love!

Those are beautiful chickens. I love the colors of the feathers.
