"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"!

yust yolkin'



You wanna know something that just flaps my waddles?  It's spring again and I still don't have a place for the chickens to roost.  No more walking on eggshells for me.  If my men don't shake a tail feather, eggs 'round here will be scarce as hen's teeth!  Apparently it's time for me to put up a squawk.  I've spent two years brooding over the thing like a Banty on a June bug, now it's time to raise my hackle feathers.


home?

The rooster may rule the roost, but the hen rules the rooster!


home?

Yust yolkin' sweetie...I'm sure you've hatched a plan for a coop.  And I'm looking forward to seeing you strut your stuff!


Blessings,  Debbie

  1. Sometimes it's the squackingest [it is to a word] hen that gets the home! Good luck!

  2. HAHA!
    I love that.
    It reminds me of the line from My Big Fat Greek Wedding when the mom says, "The man is the head of the family, but the woman... she is the neck. And the neck can turn the head."

    Good luck getting your rooster to deal with the hen house!

  3. Our coop is really coming along--I've got my fingers crossed that it will be finished this weekend. I'll be sure to post pictures of it inside and out for inspiration :-)

    Keep squawkin' Henny! (Is she a Plymouth Rock?)

  4. what an adorable chook! My chooks are staying with my mum for a week while we go on holiday and I miss them already (I only dropped them off last night:)
    I agree, it always does sound strange when people blogging from across the world talking about the opposite season! Enjoy your spring (im a bit jelous because spring is my favourite!)

  5. Weeeeee -- what farmish fun! And I have eggs-actly the same issue. No roosts. Just nesting boxes. This will be addressed this spring, thank goodness.

    Blessings...

  7. I think it's cheaty to have chickens. You can't take a bad picture of them for one thing. And they're always up to something newsworthy for the other. Horses just get muddier and always have the same sour why-the-heck-am-I-not-on-the-spring-grass attitude. And that's all I have to say about that.

  8. They are pretty feathered friends! Hopefully they will have a home-sweet-home real soon! :)
