Counting your Chickens....

With a chick chick here, and a chick chick there....

Something I've always wanted is chickens and fresh eggs. I love the romantic look of hens scratching around in my gardens clucking. 

That is not going to happen as long as I have my two dogs, Lucy and Bill. They bark and chase the birds who have the nerve to fly over their fields so you can imagine what their response would be to chickens! But a girl can dream.

And of course, if you have chickens, you have to have a chicken coop, and that is where you can really get creative. Here are a few fabulous examples. 

This as my absolute favorite. It is just beautiful, so rustic and inviting. 

You gotta love that face

This beauty is from Martha Stewart's farm. Like everything she does, it is stunning.

 So adorable

I have enough rocks on my property to build this wonderful stone coop.
 If I only had the talent!

They look so happy and content
