Barn Chick Friday!

Howdy all you barn chicks! Come onto my back porch. Grab a sunflower to put in your hair and an apple to snack on. Let's go visit my neighbor's chickens. Amy doesn't have a barn, but she has a coop.

We'll just go in through the back gate to visit the "girls". Don't worry, they won't peck you. They are sweet girls who love to have visitors.

There is Aretha and Beatrice and I can't remember the name of Aretha's twin. Notice the oars on the other side of the fence. The girls "Dad" Billy is an expert kayaker!

Here is Thelma. You all remember Thelma! She likes to hop the fence and come over to visit Bentley. Unfortunately, Bentley does not welcome her visits!!

Hi girls! Are you coming over to say hi??

Show us around your free range territory ...

You have lots of treats to snack on and you have ....

Your own drinking fountain too!!

These girls are so happy in their backyard!!

Bye girls! Thanks for a lovely visit!! Now the rest of you girls be sure to stop by and visit Barn Chick Karen at Brayton Homestead Interiors. Hopefully Hurricane Earl decides to leave her corner of Massachusetts alone. Please stop by and visit Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday too!

Hi Bentley. I just visited Thelma and I think she would love to visit with you again. Do you think that you could welcome her and not chase her??? Bentley??? He is ignoring me.

  1. Barn chicks even without a barn are good fun! I have been bathing my chickens lately in preparation for a chicken show.I don't have a barn either, just a few coops for my beloved chicks. Thanks for taking me along to visit.

  2. Oh I'm lovin' the girls! Poor Bentley, he'll adjust!

  3. Susan,
    I just loved seeing where Thelma and her sisters live! Looks like they are being treated very well! Arf, Bentley

  4. Thanks Susan that was a really fun visit with the "girls"! I hope to someday have my own place again and have a few chickens, I think they are hilarious! Happy Friday!
