Chook Pen Tour.

Just one thing before I start, we call chickens Chooks over here in Oz land, just incase you didn't know what chooks were,.
 Welcome to my Coop tour and party or as we say here a Trip around the Chook Pen;
Come with me and Heidi cause
I would like welcome you all to my chook pen and my chooks.
 I have quite a good range of chooks, the best one is a rooster named Cheeky. When he hatched his mum didn't want him so me being me picked him up and started caring for him and yes you guessed it he is King Dick now and thinks he owns the place.
He has fathered a lot of little chicks but the boys gang up on him and tried to do him in so we had to make a cage just for him. He is too old now and his sons are the men of the roost.
Cheeky lived inside for many months until now and he hates being just one of the chooks like the rest of them.lol
I have always loved chooks and when I was a little girl Mum and Dad had chooks and it was my job to feed them and to collect the eggs, I was scared of them for a lot of years cause they use to fly at me and try to land on my head and I remember running out of the yard yelling with my arms flapping around my head trying to protect my ears.
I  look but now and worder what all the fuse was about, if only I had of walked right in and took the eggs and took controll who knows what kind of person I would of grown into,.lol
********************
Here are my Silkies, there are so fluffy and cute with all there pretty white feathers and the male has beautiful blue feathers on and around his face.,

And here he is our beautiful Cheeky; King of the chooks.
Isn't he so handsome, well the girls think he is. He has been replaced now and my ladies all have toy boys,.lol

***********************
Here he is with 1 wife and his first lot of babies.,

**************************
So cuteeeeeeeeee

Cheeky when only a chick
*********************
These are baby ducklings, they are only a few minuets to hour old
You can see the little one that just broke through his shell

**************************

I hope you enjoyed my Chook Tour. Go and visit all the other cholo lovers on there tours,.I had lots of other chooks but sadly  the foxes got them and this is all we have left, I have wised up since then, have better cages  and have only lost a couple that flew the coup. Some of my bantams live in the trees so the foxes cant get them.,
Hope you have fun ., don't let the bedbugs bite and until next time love ya's    Glenda  xoxoxoxoxoxoxo

Hello Glenda!
Oh how I adore your chickens ... oops I mean chooks! :-)

They are so wonderful -- in looks, and in usefulness. I would love to have chickens here, but I am not sure how my neighbors would feel about it.

So, it's dogs for us. But they don't lay eggs, y'know?

So cute! I hope to have chickens myself someday. Just not doable here in the city! :)

I'm so sorry we never connected for Jenny's Vintage Vacation swap. not sure what happened?? I sent you a few emails and left a comment here before. Hope all is well! I just told Jenny I'd drop out at this point.

Hi Glenda!
*Love* your Chook Tour! Does "chook" rhyme with cook? Hmmm... Cook a chook? ;)
I had two pet hens when I was little - Henry & Henrietta (both girls!). When I was 10 I talked my parents into letting me get another chick (for a "science project", or so was my claim - lol!). He grew into an enormous and beautiful black & white rooster. I named him Pepper! I *love* chickens and hope to have two more hens some day! Thanks for sharing!
Hugs!

Hugz, Dolly
