Chick this out!


There is a saying, "You can take a girl out of the country but you can't take the country out of the girl."  I am far from my farm roots, nourishing my own family's roots in a small , small spot of land in the suburbs. 

Fresh eggs still warm from being snatched from under a proud clucking hen on a Saturday morning to be eaten on a stack of hot pancakes will hopefully be a part of my children's' childhood as it was mine if my crazy notion of raising a few hens in my backyard works out in reality as well as it does in my pipe dreams.

Here is one of our new brood, Sassy, a Rhode Island Red.  This was one week ago and she has grown and changed quickly.  Her cuteness hasn't completely disappeared into gawky feathers and uncoordinated wing flapping.  We know it won't be long until she hits the ugly phase, so for now we are enjoying her CUTENESS!


And that was the longest way of saying, "I am entering this picture into the iheartfaces weekly photo contest."  



Join me over there for many more pet faces.
