It's the hip thing to do right now!
Well here where I live, people don't do it because they're hip, it's just the way of life.
But even yuppies like my brother, Dr. Brandon Hayes PHD, who lives on one of the busiest streets in Madison has girls clucking in his backyard! His stories of them escaping and marching down the sidewalk are always entertaining.
My city-slicker friend Sarah is from an upscale suburb in Detroit and has turned into a crazy chicken lady living in the country a few miles from me. Her hens roost in the tree at night and we laugh over her hilarious chicken stories in the middle of the grocery store, making people stare. (Or they could just be staring because she is one of the most beautiful human beings on the planet!) She regularly consults chicken pages on Facebook and receives answers (and lots of them!) instantly from all those passionate about their girls.

All that to say, most of us know at LEAST one person we could call "a crazy chicken lady"!
So you're probably asking, does Kammy have chickens?
Well I have only three at the moment. As a kid, my dad ordered about two hundred baby chicks every summer and it was our job (my brother, sister, and I) to raise them up to get fat and ready for the table, but we never had layers. Our three present girls are more my little boy's than mine, as he is head-over-heels in love with critters and wants to be a zoo keeper some day.
This week, I've been a having a creative blast making these
chicken signs with the new chicken stencil my mom gave me for Christmas!
Three days ago, I got the following message from his second grade teacher on my Facebook wall:
"Some of your eggs were kept safely on my desk instead of going out for recess in a winter coat pocket. We had a good laugh together before he ran outside to play".
Oops, guess he forgot to bring them in before getting on the bus!!
Funny memories like that makes this sign so true:
|I made this sign with floor board trim I found in the barn- white chippy paint and everything.|
This sign is dedicated to some of the "crazy chicken ladies" I know: Sarah, Resha, Esther, Becky, Tina....
and perhaps this one - I'm pretty sure Obsessive Chicken Disorder (OCD) is totally a thing:
and then just a little cute sign made from corncrib slats (because chickens are a blessing):
And how could I end this post without a shot of my sweet feathered friends (yes you see four when I said earlier I only had three... sniff sniff)?
