Happy Friday


The picture above was taken about 2 years ago. The chicken in the picture is Bert.
This picture is funny because I don't normally enjoy holding an animal like this. I remember holding this chicken just long enough for my sister to take the photo.

My mother raises chickens.(as pets) I'm headed home to visit my family today. They live about 2-1/2 hours south of where we live now. I'm excited to see the baby chicks that Mom just got last month. They also got turkeys, and they have 5 or 6 quail.

My sister is a natural with these birds. Didn't even bat an eye when picking up 4 at a time! This is my favorite picture of Franny. She's such a tom boy!
More of these photos to come later in the weekend when I get home.
No new jewelry to report today. I'm looking forward to a few days of R & R.
Have a good weekend!
:)

  1. Oh, I want a chicken! I think that would be a fabulous pet for me. Nobody thinks it would go jogging in a little harness and leash with me though. I think it might enjoy a nice walk at least. My folks are about 2.5 hours south of me as well, and we raised chickens when I was a kid.
