My horizons have shrunk a little recently so it was not only a
great surprise but also a great joy when my eldest
granddaughter built a beautiful chicken coop for my birthday
If you enlarge, you can see it in all it's glory gracing the corner
of my fallow veggie patch, front left, rain gauge on the stone seat
when my grandchildren provide, they provide thoroughly, three
bantam pullets and a bin of wheat as well + two eggs they had
laid in transit
within four days, they were tame enough so I could let them
mow the lawn and hunt for insect pests
up close and personal, when I step outside, they very soon find me
and together we enjoy the spring and the view down to my
daughter's house and the huge false acacia, apple trees in bloom
and the pink of Tamarix gallica just showing at bottom left.
The world is beautiful and I am well content.

What a wonderful gift from your grandchildren! Looks like your little banties will provide excellent bug control.ReplyDelete
Congratulations for a well contented life. YOur area is so wide to very well care for your pets. We have native chickens too, but mother spoiled them and they don't anymore want to look for their own food even if they are free.ReplyDelete
Looks beautiful ... Bantams are my favourite chicks!!! Chickens are a lot smarter than people give them credit. Love them. Lots to enjoy!!ReplyDelete
Chickens. Fabulous! I want some myself.ReplyDelete
That's a grand coop! How wonderful to have your daughter living so close!ReplyDelete
How wonderful Arija. Chooks multiply our contentment factor many times - they are great to have around aren't they.. Such lucky little bantams to have your property to free range and explore.ReplyDelete
Enjoy each others company. Great gift from the grandkids!
Arija, your granddaughter did an awesome job on the coop. And I love the chickens! I would enjoy sitting and watching them. What a cool gift! Enjoy!ReplyDelete
Mmmm! Fresh eggs! What a wonderful gift from your granddaughter.ReplyDelete
Watching them would be so stress relieving! A very thoughtful gift!ReplyDelete
Being content is a wonderful feeling. :)
Thank you for the "blog follow"!
I wish I could keep chickens on my property, as I love fresh eggs. This was a wonderful gift from your grandchildren!
You have some new pals, Arija! I'd be sitting and watching them peck about the yard - and I bet the eggs taste great!ReplyDelete
We have a cubby in the corner of the garden - and once it is no longer in use, the space has "chickens" written all over it!ReplyDelete
Virus gone - but appetite not back - which is good for the waistline, but rather boring!
