Red-headed stranger, again


Just have to show you these...


We drove through the strip pit area and Roger's cousin lives near where we were at...


So we stopped by...


His wife let out their chickens.  She and I sat in a swing and talked and laughed...just watching them.



I so wish I had thought and recorded the sound.  Just such a homey sound...even when he crowed it was not at all annoying.

Cool series of chicken photos. They are actually kind of pretty.

Ginny Hartzler said...

Wow! They look like they were just groomed for a show. And that first picture, FANCY!! Better than Willie, for sure!

Susan Zarzycki said...

Oh, I would love to have some chickens! Alas, my life style is not conducive to taking care of them. Love your pictures!

Ginny Hartzler said...

Back again for another look. I still can't get over those perfect feathers in the first picture.

Ruth Hiebert said...

WOW! He is mighty handsome.

Bill said...

We have lots of chickens close to us--- Nice pictures.

Laurel Wood said...

I love these photos. They would be pretty framed to hang in the kitchen. I can just imagine you two enjoying the sound while talking and laughing.

Ah, the Little Red Rooster!
I love to watch the behaviour of hens - so much like people!

Ann said...

Well how fun was that. I kow of several people who raise chickens. Seeing the feathers in that first one I find them so pretty and fascinating.

Hello,

I could sit and watch the chickens, the rooster is beautiful. Cute photos.
Wishing you a happy day!

they are really beautiful chickens, I would love to hear the sounds. but not at early am. our neighbor had one that crowed from 2:30 am and half the day. I used to lay in bed and plan ways to murder him... I had no idea they crowed anytime other than daybreak. that was 40 ears ago. excellent photos of these chicks

I loved visiting my grandparents' farm in TN when growing up. Seeing the chickens and other animals was such a thrill. Beautiful images and thoughts. Friendship

I couldn't find the comment form on your Aug. 12 post. Don't know what I did. But the yellows were brilliant and the photos enticing.

Gorgeous critters! For some reason, people leave them at picnic areas to fend for themselves here in NZ when they are tired of them. Fortunately, they adapt quite easily.
