The Line Up

Every evening when I get home, this is the scene that greets me.


The chickens all line up at the fence waiting for me to let them out for some free ranging. They know when they see my car pull in the driveway that it's time to free range! Duchess joins the line up, waiting to get out and dig some new holes.

When I walk down to let everyone out, Sylvester follows me so he can join in on the fun. He tries his hardest to get Duchess to play with him, but she usually seems uninterested.


Playfulness doesn't work, so Sylvester tries to be sweet. Duchess usually warms up to this :)


I love my evenings with the animal crew.

  1. That's really sweet. Our dog, Kane is leary of the cats and prefers they keep their distance. Deb

  6. So adorable!! Duchess sleeps with the chickens!! Guess that would make sense since she's a guard dog! Does she ever get shaved down? Would think she would be hot in the summer months!

  21. Wow, what a unique blog you have here. I am so happy to have stumbled upon it! I read your About Us page and fell in love with the idea of relocating to the country to be more self-sufficient. I would love to visit a place like your home someday and truly see how it is to live more genuinely.

    Can't wait to read more from you!

  28. Oh my gosh, what a huge dose of adorable! I have a tiny dog (Shih Tzu) and he pretty much terrorizes my chickens. He doesn't hurt them, I just think he believes everyone should play with him and hasn't learned the chickens aren't interested.
