I'm participating in Outdoor Wednesday, hosted by A Southern Daydreamer today! Be sure to visit this delightful blog!
It was my sister's birthday this week so I went to visit her. Being an empty nester, and all, I have more time to do things like this now. Linda and her family live out in the country. If you look carefully, you will get a glimpse of the pond at the farm across the road from her house. You know when it's spring around here because of the constant trill of the spring peepers! Love it.
You can see the cornfield behind the back yard. Linda has 7 chickens, so we headed out to see them.
Look at the different patterns on each hen! Each breed is uniquely beautiful. Each has her own feather pattern. Glorious.
Linda thinks this one is the most beautiful. She is gorgeous.
When it was time for them to go back into their run, I watched them follow Linda like she was the Pied Piper. Linda and her family love these birds, and they truly are pets, as well as egg producers.
She sent me home with a dozen beautiful brown eggs!
