Ethel checks in #1

 It's 91 outside but 75 inside. Smooch and I picked wild flowers.



I told them I'd meet them halfway...cookies were given out.
They were so patient with me!



I think I want one for a purse!



 It took the chickens all day to squeeze out the brown one because of the heat.



 Mrs. Hughes said they needed a meeting.



I told her to put the word out and
have everyone meet at the water cooler.



They would like a fan in the coop, some elevator music to relax by,
and more mud when it's over 90 degrees...



...or they would walk off the job.




Your baby has been looking for you.
She sometimes still thinks that you're in the truck, but she's happy.



Isn't this cool? We found it on our walk.
The bones will be awesome when he dries up!
(This is why Ethel and I have been friends for 46 years.)

  2. I keep the hose trickling for my chickens when it's hot. They love standing in the puddle and drinking the fresh water. Also, I share my fresh fruit with them....mostly the red grapes.

    OK, I was not expecting that last pic! You guys are weird (in a nice way). Looks like Ethel has everything under control until the snakes show up, lol.

  9. So nice that you can enjoy your vacation knowing the ranch is in good hands. Does she let JCC in while you are gone?

  10. It gets hot down here and my chookies get a mud bath every day to help them cool off. They paddle in it till the water soaks in, then they dig into the cool, wet soil. Happy chickens!

  12. And she even keeps us up to date with funny posts - not a bad temp, that Ethel. But I badly regret that I zoomed in on that last photo, didn't really need to know what is was...

  14. Great post, Ethel! I'd cave to the chicken demands. They are little badasses.

  15. There is nothing better than friends of 46 years who still delight in the carcass of a frog. Just the best.

    I love the pictures and comments, but the last one was a bit surprising!
    I guess you can look forward to more bones for a future art project?!
