Chickens Ahead...

 I am not sure why I have a fascination with chickens.
My grandparents had them when I was growing up. 
I remember gathering eggs occasionally but was scarred for life when my grandpa had to cut off the head of the chicken we had for dinner.  
Grandma kept telling me it was not the one that was beheaded....it was the one from the grocery. 
My son was asked to take care of our neighbor's chickens while they were on vacation.  The second day in he and his dad came home with a dead chicken.
We were not sure if it was the heat or being pecked to death....now he, the animal lover has been scarred for life.  But the asking for chickens has some to a complete stop! 
I had a friend in Vegas who loved chickens and her kitchen was decorated so nicely with all manner of chickens. 
I think this is where I notice how colorful they could be and started looking at chickens in a new light. 
Now all these chickens are 15% off at my Etsy shop for Christmas in July. 
I will be having 15% off on everything in my shop.   So if Chickens are not your thing there is plenty of other things to choose from.
This is for everything in the shop but excludes shipping.

I had no idea I had this many chickens---does this count for owning them but not having to feed or maintain them?  This works for me!!
Now GEESE they are a complete different critter and a story for another time....
Enjoy your day!

  6. OMGosh, now that's a chicken crossing for sure! I remember, as a child, my dad cutting a chicken's head off and that chicken got up and ran around the yard! What a scarey sight... lol.
