Yetti Kisses....................
for Bubble, Squeak & Hootie!


Ohhhh spring has definitely sprung full force here at the Olde Madrid Plaza in Southern Colorado! Poor Yetti.....he wants to protect....he wants to play.....his little devil on his shoulder is saying...'go for it~ just one...one wont hurt anything...they wont notice if just one is missing.....oh and I LOVE me some chicken!'
Hes a good boy tho~ really! Yetti is our Great Pyrnese~ he protects the property & the children so well~ we are his flock....and he is catching on quick that his flock has gotten a wee bit larger......by 32 to be exact! Besides planting the Orchard~ 2 cherry trees, 2 peach trees & 5 apple trees......We had 30 chicks delivered this week!!! And...
2 duckies for moi~ can you see them there? I named them 'Bubble & Squeak'. We haven't had any fowl on the farm since April 2005, when a fox visited and we lost all the girls, the rooster, 2 ducks and my goose, Charity. I told my husband NO more until we built a new pen, one covered over the top, and with wire burried deep all around the outside run.........so where is DH on this 70+ degree bright sunny spring day???? No Mother~ hes not playing his game on the computer~ hes out building the pen! WOO HOO! The children already have a list of egg buyers...thank GOODNESS~ I was thinking~ WHAT am I going to do with 30 eggs every day! AKKKKKK
I don't normally name chickens, but this is a little exotic we got, I think she looks like an owl, so I named her HOOTIE! HAPPY SPRING EVERYONE!!

Hi this last chick is an "Americana", an Auracana cross. They lay blue or green eggs. They have been crossed with a larger chicken. They are excellent layers and sometimes broody.(Will set on eggs until they hatch) Pam

Thanks for visiting Pam!! I didnt think anyone would care what type chickies they were~ sorry I left that out. The others my husband got are all Buff Orringtons & Rhode Island Reds
