Chickens, and a bit of this and that...


Just thought I would show you this girl...she belongs to Roger's cousin's wife...her name might be Goldie...but I am not sure.  There were a couple of these Buff Orpingtons, and I don't know which was which.


Here is this handsome fellow with one of the girls...but I cannot take my eyes off him.  His feathers are absolutely gorgeous.

As I looked for photos to post, I am listening to thunder and it is pouring rain.  There were severe storm warnings out but that is past us for now.  I sat on the porch and listened and watched for a bit.  Even the sound of the leaves rustling in the wind has a fall sound to them. 

And don't you love that smell of the dust settling when it first begins to rain? 

Someone told me to watch Vera and I am sorry that I don't remember who told me.  I would like to thank them.  I am really enjoying the series.  It keeps one guessing till the very end, much as Shetland did.

I hope you all had a good weekend...and have a good week ahead.

Those chickens are beautiful. The way you describe the rain and thunderstorm,I can almost feel it. I love a good thunder/rain storm.

Yes, I do love the smell that comes when it first starts to rain,
How I wish we'd get a good soaking rain soon.
Those chickens are beautiful. I wonder if the rooster is fierce... all the roosters I've known have been just that. Now I'm actually scared of them.

Beautiful chickens, both the girls and handsome male. I think Vera will be interesting to watch because I love suspense. Have a happy weekend!

Hello, the chickens are beautiful. The male is handsome. We seem to be missing a lot of the rain, our plants need to be watered. Have a happy day and a great new week!

I think these chickens are the prettiest I have seen.. photos anyway. I have not seen many chickens in my life, and in the past 35 years, only 2 at the historical village. I agree his feathers are magnificent and so are the golden girls, their feathers are beautiful

I am not a rain person, I don't like storms or rain or the sound on the roof. I do love the way the earth looks after it quits raining, all washed and happy and green.. I prefer my rain to come while I am sleeping but not with loud booms... I am happy today, we had 4 hours of sun yesterday and the sun came up today and is still shining. yay sun

Hot and humid here, and the thunder has just started. We could use a little rain, and then I won't have to drag the hoses out. :-) We have chickens, but we've never had roosters because it's against city ordinances. But, those handsome noisy guys do have the color don't they. :-)

Beautiful chicken pics. Such lovely coloring.
We had rain about dark last night and I enjoyed the cool breeze and the rustling of the leaves. Fall cannot come soon enough for me.
Hope you have a good night.

I love the Buff Orpingtons. They are always big and fluffy. That rooster is pretty and reminds me of the one we have now. You know, I hear a lot of folks talking about how mean their rooster is, but we have never had a mean rooster. Maybe its because I talk to them. :)

thanks for the TV recommendations. Those chickens and rooster are sure pretty. Terry loves chickens and always wants to have some here. I STOMP my foot down. Dogs and chickens? I don't think so. This City Girl cleaning the coop when he can't..No Way Hosa'

Lovely chickens and she looks like a Goldie :) We have been having thunderstorms, two doozies over the last couple of nights. Nothing tonight yet. Yes to the dust settling. I've watched Vera but not in a while. Thank you for the reminder as I do enjoy it. Enjoy the rest of your week Rose.
