bike ride and a chicken family

busy busy lately, (aren't we all?), and have not had much time to catch up. The weather has been nicer, and with gas being so expensive, I've been riding my bike to work lately. Every day I pass by this chicken family on a very busy road. They are actually back from the road a bit, so I don't worry about them getting hit. (I haven't seen feathers in the road, so I think they're ok). 

I just think it's the funniest thing to see chickens in the city. I hear the roosters sometimes, when I go by, and I always look for them. I like chickens. I think they're cute. Same with cows. I call these guys the Curry Ford chickens, because that's the road they are on. 

Lots of straightening, cleaning, organizing, purging, as it's spring time and the time of year for that. It always feels good once it's done, right? 

Enjoy your day.

I love chickens. But not old fashioned coops (bad memories as a child, LOL).

How neat!
I have been reading about keeping chickens all Winter. I want some layers/pets...I think the zoning here prevents my desire. I live downtown...But my father has two acres, so I keep hinting...
Have a nice day.

I love these chickens too, and I always look for them to see if they are still there, and together.
@Andrea - we had hopes for keeping chickens in our yard, but our city code prohibits it. dern it!
