Chickens and Cherries

This week I set up a photo shoot with the girls. Okay, really, I just saw that it wasn’t raining and decided to see if I could get a few good shots of our hobby farm poultry.

This is one of our Rhode Island Red chickens. She has a suite at our B&B named after her. It’s called the Rhode Island Red Suite.

Now is probably a good time to admit that I bought this Ameraucana chicken just so I could have blueish-green colored eggs like Martha Stewart. These chickens are also known as Easter egg chickens. This might also be a good time to admit that I’m not wearing matching socks. Or maybe not. But I feel better letting that out.

This is our Speckled Sussex chicken. To be perfectly honest, her butt is even cuter than her face with all her speckles and all. Did I just say that out loud?

Two rhodies sharing lunch.

Time for a water break.

Then there’s our Rouen duck. She is as sweet as can be and our survivor. She’s the only remaining duck after some raccoons came to visit this fall so she is BFFs with the hens. And for this, we call her Ducken.

The two step.

Did I mention that I found a fruit tree on our property. I’m beyond proud to tell you that I’m growing not one…

… but two beautiful cherries. Today I shall celebrate and eat one. Never mind that they are barely bigger than a Tic Tac.

Just for fun, a shot of Ducken filling up.

Did I mention that I’m also growing a bazillion blackberries? Yes, yes I am. You can congratulate me in the comments.

And I leave you with this… the cutest back of a ducken drinking water out of a large bucket on the first Monday morning in July I’ve ever seen. You’re welcome.
