Caesar is a Serama roosterThis week has been rooster-centric for some reason. I’ve taken more than a few frame-worth shots of Blaze, Caesar and the P. Allen Smith roolets and wrote an article I have long intended to write on chicken mating. Rooster reproductive anatomy became a shocking subject of conversation at my sister’s house during Easter dinner (don’t ask) and I knew that if my family had such confusion over and questions about chicken sex, lots of others probably did too! If you missed that article, feel free to catch up with it here! Beyond that, the weather has been perfect for anything outdoors and I hope you enjoy some of the photos I shot while taking advantage of it!

I drink coffee for your protection.
I will be amused AFTER my coffee.
Of course it's Monday, this ain't my Friday face.
I've begun drinking coffee on Sunday nights in anticipation of Monday mornings.
Coffee ready yet?
Make no eye contact and she'll never suspect a thing.

Please and thank you are still magic words.
Thanks for visiting and have a great week!

My ladies (and I'm sure my gentlemen) would love to have more of the Manna Pro! Our 18 little ladies and 1 gentleman have now grown to over 63 strong! My girls have been busy and obviously…. so has the gentleman! 🙂
