Strange Things......

Out to do chores this morning......

And found this in the Banty hen's nest....
I wonder what kind of egg it hatched out of??


She seemed pretty content to be there till the hen pecked her head!Lol


Then started looking for a way out!

I think she even said Please Get me out!
They have been following momma out the last 2 days..

And what to do with those left over pumpkins??



Let the goats and chickens show you what to do!


They were digging in!
I broke some open last night and they turned their noses up at them..
This morning they were getting the whole ones lined up at the side of the barn!
As long as they are eating them I don't care..

The chickens will finish them off!

 Its getting cold here! I forgot to mention last time we got snow on Thanksgiving!! SNOW!?!?!? Yuck.... All well it was a dusting with big flakes. Its now cold too.. 35* for the high tomorrow...Brrrr...
 I am off to kick back! Have a good night everyone!

That is a funny lookin chicken! If the goats and chickens don't eat the pumpkins do you have any neighbors with pigs?

Oh they are eating them now.. All those bites are from the goats. What they wont eat the chickens will. No pigs close either..
The goats had to think I didnt want them to eat it!LOL So i used reverse Psychology.. Lined them up and said Dont touch!Lol One is now almost completely with out skin!

If one of my goats gets her 'cooties' on something, the others wont even think about eating it!
I have some pumpkins I will give them tomorrow and we'll see who's thankful and who has an attitude!
I will just give them whole ones as that seems to be the preferred way to eat them ;)
We are at 36 tonight..down right cold for us...usually we don't get freezes here until February!

That's pretty cool that you give the goats their own version of Pumpkin Pie for Thanksgiving!

Poor little kitty! They sure know how to get themselves into things, but not always successful in getting themselves out. They are a hoot, aren't they?

I have one pumpkin that I'm holding on to for some color out on the back porch, but as soon as it thaws, the chickens will likely get a treat.

Awwww... your little "chick" is awfully cute!! I found one sugar pie pumpkin yesterday (had been used in the chicken coop outside fall decor.. lol). I think that punkin was history in about 15 minutes in the chicken pen. Now I wish for some more.. just to watch them eat it up :) -Tammy

I read the script before the pix loaded and I was thinking a weird bird or lizard in the nest!

That kitten is too darn cute!

We got some Thanksgiving snow as well, but it didn't stick. Now we just have MUD MUD MUD. I don't know how much rain we got yesterday but it was a LOT. Cute pics of your little "chicken".

To Cute!
I'll send some of our snow your way*wink* Check out our blog pictures from just one day of snowing and we're forecasted to get more this weekend.

It was a wet heavy snow, which made shoveling paths to and from barns, coops and woodshed a real joy( sarcasm intended*wink*) Driving in it was a challenge as well, thank God we have 4x4 or we'd have been stuck for sure( in our own driveway, LOL!!!! We received 12-15", I think it was closer to 18" but Mike says no.

Blessings for your day,
Kelle

Save that little furry baby from those mean old hens! LOL! We had a lot of flurries here earlier here today! Nothing covered but it was blowing across the blacktop on the way back from the Mennonite store today. Stay warm Tonia!

It is a kat-chick. They are ferrell in many parts of the country. Seen 'em before?? Nevah! LOL

It makes me think of that "Hang in there, baby!" poster from a million years ago when I was still thin and could get off the floor without a crane! LOL

Hi Tonia! That is one cute lil furbaby that's visiting with the chickens. Nothing cuter than little kittens. I love to watch them playing.

I really liked your Backroads post, too. Love old barns and houses. And the iron bridges are getting scarce. I can't think of but one left in our county. I'll have to get a pic of it before it's gone.

Have a great Wednesday,
Cheryl

That little kitten is the cutest thing EVER. How sweet. I put my pumpkins out for the donkeys and chickens here too. I thought my chickens would be more pleased but they kinda snubbed at them too :)
