My Vicarious Chicken-Stalking

There are certain subjects that I simply love to look at....over and over and over...especially on blogs.  Chickens, milk cows, certain types of dogs, gardens, DIY projects...and so on.  Did I mention chickens?

I don't yet have any, but I'm ok for now...I have my awesome dog who fills my days with constant devotion and a good many antics, so it's filled some of that void inside me that Must Have Animals Nearby.

But I'm still looking forward, someday, to a small flock of chickens.

Here's a blog in France I frequently chicken-stalk....this post includes some of HardWorkingHippy's system of keeping her free range hens out of her (bee YOO tee full) potager terraced garden beds.   Enjoy!

P.S. I'm counting down till Monday night...still haven't accomplised The Big Clean, but am slowly and halfheartedly pushing dust bunnies further and further towards the trash bin.  I SHALL find my camera and reinstate some photos in this blog before it expires from visual boredom.

I do my share of "vicarious chicken stalking" and I actually have chickens of my very own! I just love chickens and coops. Coops say so much about a person. Was it made from reclaimed wood? Did they paint or stain it? How many nesting boxes do they have?

I can totally relate!

Love, hugs, and blessings,
Lacy

I l.o.v.e. this post - especially the title! I too was/am a chicken stalker. We now have (6) two week-old chicks in a brooder cage next to the dining table. :>) I do like to see how others put their coops together as we are still constructing ours.

Thanks for the chicken-y link. :>)
