IN THE PICTURE IS MY DAD–  WALT PHILLIPS– & HIS TEAM OF BELGIAN HORSES & COLT & ME ON MY DAD’S LITTLE  MARE– RIDING OUT RIDER FOR HIS WAGON — RODEO PARADE– IN THE  LATE 1970’S!!

WELL GARY & I HAVE A WEDDING ANNIVERSARY COMING UP— WHEN I TOOK GARY HOME TO MEET MY DAD— GARY TOLD MY DAD HE WANTED TO MARRY ME & WANTED TO GET MARRIED THE FIRST WEEK END IN JUNE & MY DAD SAID– NO ONE GETS MARRIED THE FIRST WEEK END IN JUNE THAT IS RODEO WEEK END– SO WE GOT MARRIED THE SECOND WEEK END IN JUNE!!!  🙂

GARY ASKED ME WHAT I WANTED FOR OUR ANNIVERSARY! ALL WHO KNOW ME — KNOW I’M NOT A HIGH MAINTENANCE WOMAN– AND WE DECIDED ON CHICKENS!!! 🙂

THERE WERE BABY D’ANVERS BANTAM CHICKS ADVERTISED CLOSE TO WHERE GARY GREW UP– SO WE WENT & BOUGHT THEM—— BUT ENDED UP WITH TWO D’ANVERS BANTAM HENS & 10 BABY D’ANVERS CHICKS & ONE BIG BROWN LEGHORN BABY CHICK THAT THE HEN LAID AN EGG IN THE NEST & THE BANTAM HEN HATCHED IT ALSO!!!

THIS IS ETHEL & GRACE IN THEIR PET CARRIER ON THE WAY HOME– WHAT YOU CAN’T SEE IS 11 BABY CHICKS UNDER ETHEL —

CHICK 6

SO GLAD WE HAD TWO SMALL CHICKEN COOPS—– WE ALSO HAVE A BIG ONE— BUT WE HAVE TWO SMALL ONES– AND SO WE SET UP ONE SMALL HUTCH UNDER THE SHADE TREES IN THE BACK YARD– ETC– DOG PEN AROUND THE HUTCH– ETC- ETC ETC–

BUT ETHEL — WOULD FIGHT GRACE—— AND I MEAN BIG TIME- FIGHT GRACE—— SO WE MOVED THE OTHER HUTCH INTO THE DOG PEN UNDER THE SHADE TREES– AND PUT GRACE IN THE OTHER HUTCH— & STILL HAD TO PUT A BOARD BETWEEN COOPS TO KEEP ETHEL FROM FIGHTING WITH GRACE IN THE OTHER COOP——-

WE GAVE GRACE LIKE 4 BABY CHICKS WITH HER— AND FIRST NIGHT GRACE WENT UP THE RAMP TO THE TOP OF HER COOP & TOOK ONE CHICK WITH HER & LEFT THE OTHERS ON THE GROUND—- SO——– IN THE DARK– WE ARE CATCHING THE OTHER CHICKS WITH A BUTTER FLY NET– AND MOVED THEM BACK WITH ETHEL– AND LEFT THE ONE CHICK WITH GRACE——-

SO AT THE PRESENT TIME- UNTIL THE BABIES ARE BIG ENOUGH TO CLIMB THE RAMP TO THE TOP OF THE HUTCH THEY WILL STAY WITH ETHEL!!

WE HAVE NEVER HAD HENS AS FLIGHTY AS THESE TWO ARE– THE PEOPLE WE BOUGHT THEM FROM SAID THEY WERE FLIGHTY—- BUT THEY ARE BIG TIME FLIGHTY—– THEY WILL CALM DOWN I’M SURE— BUT THEY ARE WILD NOW!!!!! GRACE IS NOT AS WILD AS ETHEL— ETHEL IS WILD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SOON WE WILL HAVE TO TRIM THE HEN’S WINGS SO THEY CAN’T FLY AWAY——

WHEN  THEY ALL GET BIGGER- & COLD WEATHER– THEY WILL GO TO THE BIG COOP-AND IT IS INSULATED & SET UP FOR COLD WEATHER——

BUT WE ARE ENJOYING THEM—WE WATCH THEM AT A DISTANCE TO NOT UPSET ETHEL—– DON’T LOOK ETHEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  🙂

 

 

 

DON’T LOOK ETHEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

About sondasmcschatter

I was encouraged to start a blog as I suffer from MCS /multi chemical sensitivities & other health problems & I have helped several hundred others who suffer from MCS set up "Safe Homes" & given them encouragement & HOPE & share information & lots of laughs along the way also. When you choose to use fragrances, chemicals, or pesticides, You are not simply making a choice for yourself, You are making a choice for everyone around you!!!! What makes me an expert on MCS-- not a darn thing-- BUT have lived with it for years-& years- & have learned lots the HARD WAY-- by experience!! And want to give others help & HOPE & encouragement -- as I know there are not many who understand what it is to live with this illness- & ALL THAT GOES WITH IT!!! Internet has been my way of communication with many who we are confined to their "safe homes" all over the USA & other countries!! I have communicated with many HUNDRED by e-mail-- phone & letters & internet forums-- I hope this blog will help in a better way to share laughter-- hope & information!!! As for many are not any longer able to even leave their homes-- & communication is sooo important & sharing & encouragement & GIVING HOPE!!!
