The Chickens Are Jealous
This is a shout out from the Sall Farm Coop
to the chicken branch over at Verde Farm....
You see those chickens at Verde Farm
have really got it goin' on. It seems that
one day they all had a meeting and decided
they needed their own post on the farmer's blog.
Well, it was all quite civil,
and the vote was cast...
before you know it, farmer's got them
there very own post
complete with a specially
designed blogger sign!!
our chickens have been cooped up (pardon the pun)
and holed up in 4 feet of snow over at our abandoned farm.
Sall has gone in once a week to check on them,
feed and water them,
and I'm sure he talks to them while he's there
(he always does)
But, I told him not to breathe a word about
the Verde Farm chickens and their privileged life!
Sall agreed, we don't need any of that here!
Well, there must be a nosy messenger
in the neighborhood! A know-it-all hawk maybe,
or a gossiping owl...someone has spilled the beans
and now the Sall Farm chickens are pecked!!
Sall said they're giving him the cold shoulder,
and he over-heard them talking about
hitch-hiking to West Virginia!!
Good Grief, it's always something at the farm!
So, to appease the gang...
we told them we'd post some of their
pictures and send a shout out to those
lucky birds at Verde Farm!!
Sully, the rooster!
He's a handsome dude.
Sully keeps all the girls in line!
So, cluck, cluck to Sunny D and Plato and Charlotte...
good job on this week's chicken picks!
(maybe some day we'll all live in fancy coops like Tiffany's)
These are some vintage chickens displayed
at our winter lodge. Every time I look at them
I think about our chickens at home nested in the hay.
I hope everyone's happy now!
