When your friends know you’re crazy, but help you anyway, because they love you.

The other day I entered into a photo contest for one of my chickens… that’s right I said chicken … not kid!  LOL   I started out the day by asking everyone who I knew to vote for the chicken photo I had submitted of my Ayam Cemani hen.  I was very proud of the picture I took.   As the day went on I found myself in between running errands, making meals, getting our school room ready and  checking the votes… I was so happy that for the first part I was in the lead!

Then after nap time I lost the lead… this is where the name crazy chicken lady comes into play.  I texted my friends  asking them to please ask THEIR friends to vote.  They already know my passion for my chickens. You know what, I have some pretty amazing friends in my life. They went and asked their friends for me. I was truly moved by them helping me.    I didn’t win , I lost by 15 votes but I did come in second place!!!!  I won  a painting that is going to made from the photo I had submitted.   I would like to thank my friends who know I’m crazy about my chickens, get texts with photos of my chickens, and still love me for me.  Hugs to each and everyone of you.


Quail eggs!

A lot of people have been sending me messages asking how do you open the quail eggs! I made a video on how to do just that. My daughter was my camera girl. Please forgive my tongue tied moment I had while making the video😂 and my appearance. #hobby #backyarding #quail #eggs #food #cuttingeggsopen #fun #hopeyouenjoyedthevideo #video #human #thatswhyinormallydontdovideos #tonguetie

Art craft

Tonight I decided to try a craft I had seen on Facebook. Put the paint layered into a cup and then pour it on to the canvas. I didn’t have gloves so if you don’t want to get paint on your hands then I would recommend getting the gloves. 😂😂. It is fun to do .. kids would probably have fun doing this, and I’m sure it would be even more of a mess with them. It’s one of those crafts you do just before bath time 😂.

I’m happy with how it turned out, but it does take a lot of paint. If you’re not into wasting, then this might not be the craft for you. #hobby #backyarding #painting #crafts #somethingtodoonasnowynight #canbemessy

Girls laying

The girls( chickens) are starting to pick up their laying! I was very surprised to see three eggs in the nesting box this afternoon! It’s a nice change from the zero to one egg I have been getting 🤣🤣🤣

New year

Happy New Year from myself and girls ( chickens) Medusa has come a long way sense she was this little chick!

She is all done molting! Doesn’t she look beautiful?!?! The other girls how ever are still molting! I know some people collect the feathers, then wash them and make things out of them. Maybe one day I will do this but for now I have my other crafts to keep myself busy! #hobby #backyarding #mygirls #pleaseshare #thanksforreading #pleasefollow #chickens #chook #fluffybutts #chickensarefun #happynewyear #mayyournewyearbesafeandfun #imnotdoinganythingbecauseihavekidsandchickens #lovemychickens #crafts #momlifecanbefun #bigfamily
