Chicken TV

We have come to enjoy the weekend mornings watching the antics of the chickens.  We have coined this “chicken tv”.  This consists of watching the chickens and everyone in the family taking turns providing commentary.

This morning we looked out the window and noticed all the chickens were facing the barn wall.  This completly reminded me of a police line up from the movies.


” ok, everyone. . .  Face the wall. . .put your hands on the wall”.

Sadie’s observation was discovering two birds fighting over a chicken feather in the trees.


Which turned into …


Which later turned into …


Taking a break which turned into …


Sadie making the observation that they were riding each other just like Ringo does with the hens.  She is learning all about the birds and bees.  Literally.  😄

We spent the rest of the weekend heading up to Zimmerman to see the goat triplets.   We were struck by how small they were in person.  We learned that they were a little over 2 lbs.  When they were born.



This is the look of a 9 year old annoyed his mother made him stop and take a picture.  Teen years here we come.


This must of been a lucky weekend because the neighbors also had a new doe born.  Our neighbor’s raise nubian goats.


We had snow this weekend so the new baby was dressed up for the occassion.


To end the weekend we enjoyed the sunset.
