Flyin’ The Coop

6 Nov

What a week!  Oh what a week…

In celebration (okay, not really, but it feels like it), Isaac and I are heading west to celebrate “Western Orthodox Christmas” with his family.

To keep you company, here’s a few our neighbors, including Maybel the chicken.

(Who I’m considering adopting.  Anyone out there have experience with adopting a rogue chicken?)

I’ll be back next week with pictures and stories.

    I love your photos! I especially like the chipmunk in the bird feeder ~ they’re adorable critters. We go to an old mining town in Colorado for vacations and the lodge we stay at has chipmunks that are so tame they’ll come right up to you and eat out of your hand. Of course, nothing can prepare you for one jumping up on your shoulder looking for a handout while your relaxing on a porch swing! :)

    Rogue chicken? I have this image of a chicken in sunglasses with a super spy phone watch. Don’t know why.

    Cuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuute chipmunk and gorgeous bird pics.

    Do you find rogue hen eggs?

    Thanks you guys!! We had so much fun!

    Jean — Don’t be envious. I have a lot of problems too. I just gloss over them.

    Kimberly — I had a squirrel do that once, and it just about killed me. It was the world’s creepiest squirrel too, so that didn’t help :-)

    EB — Me too! And then I come back to reality and it’s just Maybel. At least she’s adorable.

    Marie — No, no rogue eggs yet, but we’ve been looking. That’s why I’m thinking about building her a little house. If she’s eating all my birdseed, I want to get some eggs in return!

    Oh, you should definitely build her a little hen house, I’m sure she’d go on in for the shelter – hens like to lay eggs in close quarters.
