Relative peace

In our little sphere; the morning seemed to confuse my mom somewhat, but a good walk after lunch in unexpected partial sun cleared her head. We wished the neighbors' chickens a good holiday, and decided they were fortunate not to be slated as the main course. I'm not so much a pet bird fan, but these two chickens have somehow endeared themselves to us.
Had a delightful evening with friends, and a good night.

I filled my bird feeders Christmas morning and wished all the birds and squirrels a very Merry Christmas. They were so busy eating that I guess they didn't hear me. No one spoke back. :)

Glad your holiday was pleasant.

We had a pet bird, but we gave her to someone with more birds to keep her company. She was lonely and grouchy, poor thing.

Perhaps we should have considered a chicken?

I had a neighbor who kept chickens -- as pets and for the eggs they produced. I was surprised to learn that no roosters are necessary -- hens will produce eggs anyway. Tiny little brown eggs, but very tasty!

Thanks, pop!

Well,see, there's this part of keeping chickens called "manure management." Nuff said.

Our friends' chickens have laid pale blue, green, and pinkish eggs, betty c. The green and blue ones came from aracaunas, and the pink/buff from a Buff Orfington, I think the breed is called. They eat free range a lot, and their eggs are wonderful, with very deep yellow yolks.
