Chicken Fever & A Thank you to Kendra

As promised, I am posting some updated pictures of my chickens.  They are growing so fast, it is just amazing.
 This second picture is a special one for my chickie pal, Trace of Granny Trace Scraps & Squares.  I just loved her post last week of one of her chicks 'dressed' up, so I wanted to play along...what do you think Trace?

The next couple of pictures are of my newest chicks...just got them in the last week.  I had intended to only have a few more, but my Dad called and told me that someone had ordered chicks at his store, Country Max, but never came to get them, and they needed to go....so could I take some...being the chickie addict that I seem to be becoming...I said sure..why not.  Mr. Whimzie rolled his eyes at the prospect of having more, but he didn't object too loudly, so I made the drive up there yesterday to pick up 6 more.  Aren't they adorable??  The littlest ones are Blue Laced Wyandottes...gorgeous chickens.  I'm sure you'll be seeing more of them as they grow.

Now, you will recall my post last week about all the wonderful goodies that Kendra sent me on our most recent swap....but she wasn't quite finished yet...and another package came yesterday!  It wasn't addressed to me though...it was addressed to our dog, Jack.  Imagine!  I opened it up for Jack, because he is only 3 and still too young to handle a knife himself...and what do you think....Kendra included a big box of homemade doggie biscuits for Jack.  Also included was a cute sheep card from Kendra's boys, thanking me for the Tootsie pops I included for them in my swap package to Kendra.  (You can see more of what I sent Kendra by clicking HERE)  I had sent her doggie, CJ a few goodies and she wanted to return the favor.
Jack says WOOF WOOF...which, in Doganese, means ...THANK YOU KENDRA!

I just finished, cleaning the bathrooms, mopping the wood floors, and making oatmeal cookies for the Mr. and will be packing up some to take over to Drew & Maria's house in a little while.  I miss making cookies for my boys!

Have a blessed day everyone!

  6. Oh my!!!! Absolutely love the outfit for the chicken!! I love any thing Americana and he is fabulous in that. So cute. We raised chicken for a little bit. When our children were young and we home-schooled, we hatched eggs as a science fair project. We got mostly males out of it but it sure was an experience. Thanks for sharing and giving me a smile today. Blessings ~Sara

  8. Wendy,

    Too cute..the chicks and Jack too! My son and his girl have chickens....we use to get eggs all the time....he hasn't brought any in awhile...but nothing beats farm fresh.


  9. Love your little chicks!! Wish I could raise chickens. I guess I would have to move out to the country to do that and I don't see that happening anytime soon. Have a wonderful day!
