Chickens Stories from Our Nest

Love and Patience

Feathers is so patient.
Memorable Moment

Our yard~Osterville, MA
Our daughter was newly three years old when we first got our chickens.  From day one, she has loved to hold them, especially the Silkies!  She is incredibly gentle and loves to have her photo taken with the girls.  I help her to get a nice comfortable hold on a girl.  Then, as she is posing for the camera, the little chicken slowly slips down…down…..down.  I smile just thinking about rescuing the chickens from her tiny loving arms.  Our daughter will turn five next year.   I’ll miss her holding the girls this way.  The girls on the other hand, maybe not so much.
