S is for Coop Chatter

S is for Stealth.   S is for sneaky.  S is for spy.
S is for Speckled Sussex
S is for side porch.
S is for eScape.

Who let the hens out ?

Who let them on the porch ?

 Who left the door open

So flock could critique what they saw?

Who brings the treats out ?

Who gets them first ?

Why do hens play coy and ignore the one they idolize, the Bringer of All Things Good ?

And act like the attention they receive is no big deal...

 But.....Every so often looking in the window to see what I am doing and telling the other hens every move I make.

And when I arrive to feed the herd, I get the same sort of look.... in a Bovine way.

It feels good to be so needed and wanted.... but I could sure use a few days off to pamper myself.

Any affordable, realistic ideas ?


  1. Too funny! I love how they all crowded around the door like that. It is good to feel needed and wanted, but some days I feel like all I do is feed people and animals!

    Maybe just take a stay-cation and do something you really enjoy. Let someone else take animal duties :)

  2. Oh I love these photos they made me laugh. I escape into blogland it is cheap and makes me forget the work for awhile. Good luck:) B

  3. Thank you for your condolences for our precious boy. The love from everybody is helping us through our sadness.

  4. Those are some healthy lookin' hens!

  5. How funny! If they could only talk, right? I always feel pampered by having a mani/pedi. Not really expensive, and very therapeutic!

    1. I was going to suggest the same thing. I like to tie getting a haircut, pedicure, and chiropractic visit to the same day. A massage is pretty special too.

  6. Great post! I smiled all the way through it! My grandparents had chickens and I loved collecting the eggs. Blessings to you and all your critters up there in the cold and snow! Come link up with me at for my Thursday Thoughts blog hop if you have time!

  7. Love the post – great pics! The hens are so attractive!

    Have a great Easter weekend,

    Visiting from Alphabe-Thursday

  8. What is it with chickens? They can be so funny.

  9. Pretty door and fluffy hens...however I could not help but wonder who keeps the porch clean? Oh, yeah, I know.

  10. Is it possible to hire someone one day a week in exchange for eggs. Daily chores on a farm can be exhaustive. Or hire some girl scouts or boy scouts who are looking to fulfill a merit badge.

  11. Happy Easter!
    visit and follow from Friday blog hop.
    Would be nice if you can visit and link up at my blog.
    Have a great weekend.

  12. Such Silly little hens...

    It definitely got me Smiling...

    Spectacular job!
