City Chickens


I have decided my chicken are sleek city girls and they know it. They only choose the prettiest flowers pots for resting and hopping into.

They also sit upon their favorite bench in a color coordinated pattern.


Miss Puffy Cheeks has decided her former name of Henrietta is too farm girl for her and she prefers Miss Puffy Cheeks only. I say farm girl names are best!


This model is bored with her photograph being taken and is falling asleep in the job.

I love the one where they are sitting on the bench talking around one another. Made me smile today

I think I am in LOVE with your chicks! What about roosters? Did you wind up with any and I missed it?
These girls are having a fabulous life! and I think they know it!

I think you've taken to the chickens quite well! You are having the most fun with them. Me? I'm ready to put ours in the freezer... so I can get to tending my larger chickens and bonding with them more.

Enjoy your babies!

I love your chickens! We took my two year old grand nephew with us to "help" decorate graves Memorial Day. We stopped at a small town gas station that has a resident chicken and rooster. He'd never seen chickens before and was quite thrilled with them.

What a great flock of characters you have! Very pretty!

Muddy Boot Dreams said...

They are the cutest little things...

Do you have to worry about any other animals at night? Or are they quite safe in the hen house?

I really am thinking about chickens, just don't know what the neighbours would think, or if the raccoons would bother them.

You're living one of my dreams. I SO want to have some chickens! I think they're so beautiful, and they've obviously got alot of personality too!

Lavender Cottage said...

A hen party on the fence, and obviously with lots to talk about.
I guess an afternoon nap sounds like a good idea to them too!

Olive Cooper said...

They are beautiful. It occurs to me that our Bob has a chicken who lays eggs and I need to send you a pic of her as she is enormous. He rescued her. She fell off a truck that was on the way to a slaughter house.

NanaDiana said...

Yep- I guess they are city slickers for sure. LOL..they are soooo cute. xo Diana

Love the first photo, Elaine. It is classic! They don't hurt your garden, though, do they?

Pattie @ On Hollyhock Farm said...

Lol! I love Miss Puffy Cheeks! I have a Mr. Puffy for her! Very handsome.

Your chickens are certainly more stylish than my country girls! I'll have to see what I can do about that. You must be taking grand care of them! ~ Maureen

Sooo cute!! I just got 4 little girls myself!! It's so much fun watching them grow up! Mine are 5 weeks old already!! I'm still keeping them in their run, because I'm afraid a hawk will swoop down and get them, plus I'm still bringing them in at night to their cozy brooder! You could say they are a little spoiled!! Enjoy your sweet girls!
