Are You Looking At Me?

Image hosting by Photobucket I could hear the clucking on the deck, and knew we were about to have our little feathered friend make her presence known. I layed Roman on the floor in the living room, and went to grab a handful of chicken feed to entice our chicken to stay awhile.

When I returned, the chicken was already at the door sizing up Roman, and Roman's feet were kicking like a frog out of water. Roman was so excited, and I could tell he hoped that the chicken would come a little closer so that he could give those black and white feathers a little tug, okay maybe a plucking if we're being honest here. But that chicken was no dummy, she stayed right at the door, and enjoyed her corn feed that was strategically placed on the door mat outside.

You could tell the dining experience wasn't quite as relaxed as that chicken would have preferred, but hey the food is good and cheap, you can't beat that right? All the while the chicken was pecking at this gourmet delight, she would lift her head in a bobbing motion and cock her head to the side to make sure that green, gyrating, squealing glob wasn't getting any closer. Luckily for that chicken, Roman couldn't crawl yet, or we may have had some chicken and dumplings for dinner that night.

That is just too cute! I could just picture little Roman's feet kicking away with excitement.

And to be able to have chickens at my door...LOVE IT!

I would love to be able to have chickens running around outside. We have thought about getting some laying Hens. Roman is soo cute. Its fun to watch them at this age.

Just hopping around reading blogs and comments and I happened over to your blog today... I think we have baby boys the same age. Roman seems to do the same frog out of water kick as Sam. It sure cracks me up.
Nice blog, I'll have to come back!

Chickens, huh? We just moved 8 baby chicks out to the barn. They were growing so fast, we were going to have some full fledged chickens soon!

LOL, Roman looks like Sam from the back! And Sam does the same thing with his feet...Hope and I laugh that as he kicks them together so fast, he just might start a fire with them some day, lol! Sam would be fascinated if he had chickens come knocking at his door! ;-)
