Last week I returned home (to a messy house and a beautiful partner in crime whose smile alone is enough to make me forget the work I will be in for) from another fabulous adventure with a long term friend. We drove many miles of dirt roads through Nevada, Oregon and Idaho. We scoured the desert for rocks, collected an abundance of pictures on our memory cards of the strange and beautiful, and counted falling starts. I returned home with so much inspiration! A camera full indeed (examples below), yet I can't seem to quit the chickens.
Forget cleaning the house.
I'm just not "down" with that.
Pull the weeds in the garden? ha, no...
Cook a meal? Forgetaboutit (sorry honey, grilled cheese and salsa for you)
After all of that rambling, I give you a glimpse - "Ducky"
I think it captures her personality well.
Ducky is an americana/auracana/easter egger pullet, who happened to come out of the shell resembling a duckling. At lest I thought so.
Being as talented as I am in titling animals, (remember "lady turkey?") I chose one most fitting for her. It was quite easy. Also, she's very mouthy, but enjoys a good cuddle.
Today, I have a rooster and a few imaginary birds calling for their completion. Ta ta for now
