My New Chicken

I guess sometimes you lose something and you gain something. I had to let go of my favorite chicken about a week ago (my hermaphrodite hen). And 2 days later I find a Aracona hen in my alley... very tame and I picked her up worrying about her safety and took her to my penned in outside coop.... So she's been with me and the flock for 4 days now... no ones claimed her. Chicken pecking order is not fun to see... but things are settling down...

Making the video's for my ning class... only to find they have disappeared!!! Oh the work involved!

It's all in a life ~ right?

Halloween from Australia!

Did I luck out! I got an amazing treat yesterday! My friend Lorell sent me this wonderful box from Australia. Candy! TimTam's are one of my favorites! She sent wonderful book marks of her wonderful work. A beautiful card and magnet. But most of all I love my Erriefae!!! A wonderful little fellow that will be out long after Halloween's over. Thank you Lorell!

***Also on a weird side note...The feed and seed manager looked at my chicken for the past several days... noticed that she was growing new feathers... but not hen feathers ~no Rooster feathers! She is a hermaphrodite chicken!!! 1 in 10,000 can be this ... she/he has a new home where he/she is the only chicken and is a pet for the kids and a blind bunny. I'm so happy she/he has a good home.***

I had to give my favorite hen away

She was getting picked on so unmercifully.
I couldn't watch it and knew I had to action quickly.
I called our local feed and seed store and decided to bring her there.
They said they'd find a good home for her.
I know them all down there so I don't think they'd tell me a story.
Her name way Mama...

Yep feeling sad.....

2 Witches Done...

Done except I don't like the orange ball on the white haired witches hat.
I've glued the garland in place, made their felt hats and decorated them... I had to take a break before I did the last (black haired) witch...

When they are finished I'll put them on Etsy... or do you think ebay?
