Our New Chickens and Simple & Sweet Fridays #125

We have new members to our family.
Ameraucana Chickens.
A doctor we know was moving and needed 
to find a home for his two Ameraucana Chickens.
He just wanted to make sure they found a good home.
We have been wanting to raise chickens for some time now.
Reading lots of books and taking classes.
But, as you know there's nothing like a hands on experience.
We brought the chickens home last Saturday.
Maggie our Lab, was wondering,
 what was all the excitement about.
Stan and Justin moved the chickens and chicken coop 
into their new home. 
They seemed to adjust to their new surroundings easily.
 Carly fed them and they were very happy.
They were so entertaining.
So far, we are getting nothing done around the house.
We just love watching them.
I have a broken bird bath that works nicely for their food.
It won't tip over.
We have been getting fresh eggs daily and 
are looking forward to our new members 
being part of our family.
~Life is a wonderful thing~

  4. Wow! How wonderful, Jody! Your new feathered friends are fine looking fowls, indeed! How green and pretty your garden is, and the white picket fence is the perfect background for those red crests!

    Thanks for hosting, and have a great weekend!!


  5. They're just wonderful! And productive, too!

  6. We may have 2 chickens in our future..!
    It was fun to see yours..
    They will have blue eggs right?:)

  7. PS..I may have missed it before..but I love the clean new header! Great!

  8. There is nothing better for your garden than chickens! The best garden we ever had was the year we went to my husband's Aunts and cleaned out some of the dirt in their chicken coop. The needed it removed and we decided to come home and put the dirt on our garden! I still marvel when I look at the pictures of that garden, the oldest boys were little and the plants are huge! They were the most productive and gorgeous plants we have ever grown,. Good luck with your chickens they should be a fantastic addition to your landscape!

  9. I love your CHICKENS! My cousin who is like my sister has had them about 4 years. She loves them. I go over there to get my chicken fix and she is also the one with the big veggie garden. I just grow my flowers and raise cats and dogs and girls! xxx....Brooke

  10. Oh Jody, your chickens are darling and so pretty strutting around the yard. They seem very tame and friendly. Oh to have fresh eggs - aren't they the best.
    Enjoy your new family members - what does your dog think of them?

  11. Hi Jody and Stan!
    How fun and exciting to see your new addition! Chickens!!
    Thanks so much for hosting another inspirational party!
    Have a great weekend,

  12. We I was little, I went to my grandmother's and I used to get to feed chickens and gather eggs if I promise to be very quiet and gentle. It is now such a warm memory.

    Thank you for hosting.


  13. Jody & Stan,
    Thanks for hosting Simple and Sweet Fridays each week!!!
    Good luck with the chickens. . .enjoy your fresh eggs!!!

  14. Thank you so much for the great party dearest Jody & Stan! We had chicken back in our big farm and had fresh eggs and fresh milk from a couple of cows we had; our DDs loved growing up in the farm! We have great memories.
    Have a wonderful weekend, ahead.

  15. Thanks for hosting a fun party! Yeah for chickens! We raise them, and not only are they a great responsibility for the kids but a blessing to the family. Farm fresh eggs are so much tastier than store bought. Have a great weekend.

  21. oh I luv the cute!!!! what a nice new home they have! Lucky chicks!

  22. Thank you so much for featuring my wire basket light fixture, Jodi.
    As for your chickens - I'm so jealous!! I want to have them so badly, but our town doesn't allow them in the residential areas. Darn.

  23. Thank you so much for featuring my garden nook! I'm thrilled :) And enjoy your new chickens! They are so adorable, no wonder you can't get anything done!

  24. Wow, what an addition to your family. Once you've tasted home-raised chicken eggs you'll never go back to store-bought ones.

  26. Hello, Thanks so much for hosting! Fresh eggs--yay! Blessings, Cecilia

  27. We just got back from a 10 day vacation and I am catching up on blogs- I have missed a lot. Thanks for the feature on Lisa's little garden cottage. I was awakened this morning by the sound of a nail gun. Our neighbor is building his wife a little garden cottage too. I hope they will let me post about it.
