How did wanting 4 layers and 1 noisemaker (rooster) turn into 50 chicks and 10 ducks????

I was perfectly ok with buying a few grown layers from the neighbor. But alas, over coffee with the father-in-law…they morphed!

(but he did promise he would help at butchering time)

And Yes…. If I thought for a minute I could add food coloring  to their water and make them change color ~ I WOULD~ 🙂

That being saidOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA… It’s springtime here on the farm… That means lots of little calves, kittens and chicks..

Our cows are mostly Catholic according to hubby… They are trained to line up and stick their tongues out on cue and ‘accept’ their treats. The one , I am sure is boarder line diabetic… she LOVES peppermint and brownies.

And the chicks always make me want to go to another Mike The Headless Chicken Festival! Mike is a true story about a chicken that didn’t die after they tried to butcher it!! No kidding!! he went on to perform at Coney Island, the Santa Monica Pier and more.. it’s really an interesting story.  Click the link and read all about it.mike-the-headless-chicken

The festival is great fun too. They have “Mike parade” where you and your pets have to dress up as “mike’,  fried chicked and all manner of strange fun! The kids still regale their friends with tales about it.
