They Crack Me Up

I know they're funny-looking, and to me that's part of their charm.  I just like chickens.  Can you tell?  I like them from day one.  Don't you love the boldness of the little black one?  I'm guessing she'll be a Dominique, sometimes known as Domineckers.  I have no guarantee what most of them will turn out to be and I like that.  I ordered an assortment, and it's the breeder's pick, so I get what I get.  I think it's interesting to see what they actually grow up to be.

I'm really impatient to see what this little girl is.  I've never seen one with quite her coloring.

I cleaned out the big chicken house this morning and gave them fresh hay in their nest boxes, so they are happy and busily scratching in their yard.

I'm working on a couple of projects.  You know how it is - have to have more than one going at a time.

This is the view out my sewing room window, and NO it is not rain, it is a sprinkler.  Had to be done.

Hope your day is going absolutely wonderfully!!!

Hugs and kisses,

Too funny! You are having way to much fun, Elaine. I love your blocks with the darling pink print.
Yeah, I finally know what it is like to have many projects going at one time.

Awww, they're so cute -- I'm surprised you manage to sneak in any sewing at all! I know nothing about chickens, so I wouldn't know colors or boldness or anything. It's been really fun to watch your babies!
