They're Chicken

So the other day we had a rather eventful chicken day.

It started out with Little Joe crowing...FOR THE FIRST TIME!!
It was rather cute, like he had a sore throat.
We are going to see how much and how loud he gets.  We may have to trade him as we aren't supposed to have roosters in the city.


A little later in the day one of the hens, Cheeky AKA Cleopatra, fell into an empty trash can and FREAKED out!  When one freaks they all freak.

The same day, they are out free ranging and I hear them making "scared" noises.  I look out just in time to see a hawk swooping down.  Scared that bad boy away, only to see a hungry cat right next to our wall a little while later.  I kept them in their coop for like two days.

I really think they got shook.  When they come out to free range they don't hardly go anywhere.  They really feel safe in their coop.

The Zoo with my Brother

 You may or may not know that my brother and his family are missionaries in America Samoa.  We haven't seen them for 2 1/2 years.  We had a very nice (short 2 days) visit with them.  We took them to the zoo.

 Here's our son narrating  for you all.

 There was a pigeon with a stump leg.  Our daughter really felt for it.

 Our son seeing how far he could jump.  Not too bad
 My awesome brother and his family.  Miss them tons.

 I think I got everyone, except me.  We were all looking at the bears.

My brother was really into these birds.

Indepence Day

We like to go watch the fireworks in different places every year.  This year we went on Hang Gliders Ridge.

 Our ride was a bit bumpy.  Oh, and my voice doesn't sound that high...I hope.

 View from our spot.  Not very clear, but you get the idea.

Chicken Photo Dump

 Little Joe and me.

 Dust bathing beauties.

 The two Barred Plymouth Rocks.

 Their newest favorite hangout.  There is about a week difference in time in the above set of pics and these.  They really do grow very fast.

 We seriously did just wash our windows.

Nap time inside and out.

Next post...Non-chicken.
