I CANNOT Believe It!

I came down from the barn today and what did I see? Chickens! Not in their chicken tractor BUT RUNNING AROUND MY GOAT PEN!

It seems that the male person thought it was a good idea that they have a bit of free range. He didn't even discuss it with me! You would think that he would at least of had the decency to discuss such a change with the head goat. From what I understand THIS is the culprit that started the great escape...

...the Blue Andalusian. It seems he is the adventurous chicken in the flock. He apparently escaped from the chicken tractor this morning and this how the male person got the idea to set them loose. He figured that they were in the goat pen with us goats so the eagle wouldn't bother them. They had a good time it seems, running about...

They are sure growing. Plus they are eating the icky bugs so I guess they serve some kind of service.

Although Abby did chase a chicken or two. Abby will be Abby!

Jillian and Mallory just checked them out a bit.

I stayed away. I was too upset at this change to even give them my attention. I get so upset when the male person does these things and doesn't let me know. Is it too much for a goat to ask? I don't think so, what do YOU think?


  1. Oh my, it's going to be a cold and lonely night on the couch for the male person tonight. heh heh

  2. Yeah for the happy chickens!! That is fun. The male person may have a point about their need for free rangin.' Maybe you won't die if the chickens share your pen, Pricilla!

  3. That looks like a lot of chicken-y fun! Abby chasing the chicken looks too cute.

  4. None of the cats thought chasing chickens was a good idea?

  5. Wow, they sure are growing fast. They are almost our chickeys' size! Mr. Person, {:)} please ask Pricilla next time! [;p] But pricilla, they will eat the masses of mosuitoes, so do be thankful... Just don't let them PERCH on you. That poo dries fast and hard like superglue.

  6. It was nice of you to let the chickens run free. Think of how much they enjoyed it (although they probably didn't enjoy getting chased).

  7. What's with those silly man people? I've got a man person here who would do the exact same thing.

  8. Why can't we all just get along?

  9. I bet the chickens really enjoyed their excursion and visiting with the goats.

  10. Let me give you a little tip that might help you understand The Male Person(s) - here's their motto: "It is easier to beg for forgiveness than to get permission." Keep that in mind and it explains a LOT!

  11. They look very happy Pricilla! and there will be less bugs - this is probably a move for the better??
    Does Kevin get on well with them?

  12. D'Anna - the male person comes up with some wild and crazy ideas. I mean it was his idea to get these crazy chickens in the first place!

    Julia - they seem to be leaving me alone for which I am grateful. I do reserve my right to butt them if they get in my way...

    Daisy - Abby is Abby. That is all I am going to say.

    Islandgirl - the cats seem to be giving the chickens a wide berth which is good for the chickens!

    Cici - trust me. There will be no chickens hopping on me. Kevin is bad enough! But I thank you for the advice.

    Anne - I will admit that they do seem to enjoy themselves and they do eat an awful lot of bugs.

    Margo - it seems that the males of any species are just....odd.

    Fishhawk - this from a bird that eats fish? I have seen the way you strike the water and carry off a trout....

    Becca's Dirt - they are ranging all over the pen now. Not just close to their tractor. The male person wants them to eat whatever is eating his broccoli seedlings.

    Split Rock - I will try and keep that in mind and not butt him.

    Annette - so far Kevin hasn't seemed to notice them. Which is probably good.

  13. I think it's only fair. And besides, you can have some chicken-chasin' fun!

  14. Unbelievable that the male person didn't ask your permission. What was he thinking?

  15. I have always had an inexplicable fear of chickens. But with all these farm blogs I'm reading I am starting to get over it.

    I still love my ducks best though.

  16. Where's Kevin? I need to see that fluffy little guy!

  17. Lin - you are right. even goats need a change of chase. heh heh

    BeadedTale - thank you for your understanding!

    Carolyn - I am not afraid of them I am just annoyed by them!

    Frogs - Kevin will be back tomorrow.

  18. Oh, what wonderful pics. I love chickens. They are such good entertainment. Looks like they're having a ball.


Maaaaaa away....
