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.

 

Flamingos

One of my best friends painted me some flamingos! I’m absolutely in love with it and I can’t thank her enough for thinking of me!

Now I need to find a place to hang it! I’m thinking I’ll use her idea and get a frame for it. #sheknowshowmuchIloveflamingos #flamingos #hobby #backyarding #bestfriends #lovemybestfriend #pink #sheissotalented #shealsocrochetsawsomestuff #thankyouforthinkingofme

Egg cartons

I’m super excited that my quail egg cartons came! This evening I got my labels out on them. I’m glad I listened to one of my good friends and I printed the labels!

I also got my chicken egg cartons in a while ago. Now I have my new labels on them.

I still am in love with my pink egg cartons. I don’t think I’ll change from them anytime soon. #hobby #backyarding #mygirls #chook #chickens #quail #eggs #pink #food #imcrazyformyeggcartons #lovemyname #somewomenloveshoesiloveeggcartons #pleasefollow #pleaseshare #thanksforreading #cleareggcartons

Pumpkin fun

It’s that time of the year when everything is pumpkin themed! My girls (chickens) get their share of pumpkin fun too. Thankfully they really don’t care on presentation of their pumpkins. 😂😂😂🖤🖤🖤 pumpkin is cool it’s a natural worm preventative but not a cure.

Chicks

My quail chicks are one week old today! I’m loving their personality in this batch. They are acting just like chickens very interested in the camera among other things. 🤣🤣

Iam also loving the stare down this one chick likes to give.

My kids are loving this little one. Its markings are really neat! #hobby #backyarding #quail #cuteandsmall #coturnix #pleaseshare #pleasefollow #thankyou #oneweekold

Knitting

It’s getting chilly here where I live. Soon it will be time for a scarfs, coats, gloves..and everything else that you need to keep yourself warm. One of my best friends🖤 gave me a lot of yarn. I’m in love with all the colors she gave me but this brown and blue one I just can’t get over it! It is my absolute favorite out of all the yarn colors. I decided to make a scarf with it.

Now I just have to make sure to work on it along with my other twenty million craft projects I have going on. My other best friend🖤 gave me some fabric! I’m excited to find some matching themes to go with the colors she gave me. Sadly I haven’t gotten to the craft store yet to look at fabric but it’s on my to do list! #hobby #backyarding #crafts #knitting #gettingcoldsoon #wouldratherbecoldthansuperhot #lovethesecolors #thankyoutomybestfriendsforgivingmetheseawesomestuff #pleaseshare #thanksforreading #pleasefollow

New line!

My new line of quail chicks have hatched! They are looking great and I’m excited to see these ones grow out. If I’m lucky they will have the celadon gene! They will lay blueish/greenish eggs if they have this gene!

Love my girl

This morning I spent sometime with my girls ( chcikens) they had some kale and mealworms. Yum! I also took apart their feeders for some good cleaning!

Wakita is one of my favorites and she takes really good selfies 🤣🤣🤣. I also took a few photos of my eggs.

Love doing photos with the pumpkins! #fall #hobby #backyarding #mygirls #pleaseshare #thanksforreading #chickens #chook #food #quail #eggs #pleasefollow #ayamcemani
