  2. "Chooks." We can tell where you are from. :)
    Nice to see the chooks walking free. My village has thousands of hens, but battery hens they are. :(

  4. Nice picyure! My daughter has also chickens but they are safely in a cage after the disappearing of some of them. Probably they were caught by a snake, a dingo or a goanna. Have a great weekend!

  8. Is it me or do the chickens look surprised by this minor photographic intrusion of privacy??? :-)

    Free range chicks make the best eggs...They are also "desert deployers" :-D because wherever you let them they just uproot and comb everything :-D :-D :-D

  10. We had a chicken yard when I was a kid. I like the sounds that chickens make, especially the hens; the clucking sound is sort of comforting. Can't keep them here where I live now, of course.

  11. Those are some big chickens. My eyes must be playing a trick on me. The one in the center kind of looks transparent.

  16. Ναι αγαπώ τα παιδιά αλλά...όχι δεν θέλω άλλο! Δύο είναι ΑΡΚΕΤΑ!!!

    We had chickens in our back yard some years ago but the smell was annoying and so we gave them away! I still miss the sense of the hot, fresh egg...

  17. Chickens are always hungry, aren't they? When I was a kid I liked to watch them pecking for insects. ;-)

  18. One of the things I want in life but don't have is chickens. Farm fresh eggs. Maybe someday, but probably not...

  19. when i was in grade school, our house looked so much like this. a barnyard! my late grandpop was so much into fowls and animals that many would drop by our house as if it was a zoo! i remember my grade 5 science teacher brought the entire class to our house as part of her 'zoology' topic. you'd wonder how high my grade was!

  20. I like chickens, and I think I've convinced Hubs to build me a pen so I can have some.

  21. Do you ever get dragged into wringing their necks?

    I hated that as a kid.
