Chick Lib ... or ... Another Short Country Moment

The gate to the barn area.

Lovely walk to the barn.

Thor, off in the distance, whinnying for more food.

Some of Les Girls.

Look at that strut! I think he and his paramour came from the States, back east.

There he goes, in hot pursuit of a sweet young thing.

Indoor shot of their breakfast nook. I was amazed at the size of that hen on the left. She is easily twice the size of  any of the other hens.

I zipped down the street to let the chickens out  before I headed for the highway and work. I could hear contented hen noises well before I got to the shed. I was expecting to be run over by a flock of crazed poultry, but they were most civilized as they left their "bedroom". Most headed to the breakfast nook; a few decided to take a wander outside in the backyard. All in all, it was a very [surprisingly] quiet event. They'll probably get me tomorrow!!! :)


  1. Oh how we loved looking at the peaceful hens and roosters as they got up to go to breakfast!
    That Rooster did have a big strut!

  2. Oh, I just LOVE your chickens Kathryn! and what a beautiful area you live in! That strutting rooster certainly has attitude, he must be King of the Roost!

  3. Kathryn this is where I will live in my next life, just love the countryside and the animals running around. But I suppose you sometimes dream of the city :-) Have a nice weekend! xox

  4. thank you for sharing these wonderful photos, Kathryn. How wonderful to wake up to these beautiful animals every morning!!

  5. They are adorable! I love the rooster! We have three hens but no rooster. Ive heard they can be aggressive? :0)

  6. Such beautiful pics Kathryn. Can that rooster strut or what?! He's got confidence. :)) We used to have chickens when I was growing up, my mom loved them like pets. :))

  7. I never tire of your farm and everything that lives with you - my what rain! So glad when you walk around with your camera......
