Chicken

The owner of the kennel where we board our dogs  during our  vacation  has a chicken coop.  There were 6 hens inside and a  rooster.  My kids had so much fun exploring the coop.  The owner gave them a tour inside the coop and show them where the hens lay eggs.


It is very interesting to note that one of the chicken was staying inside.  The owner said that  that specific hen was being picked on by the other hen so she stayed inside moist of the times.    



My kids don't see chicken very often so you can just imagine how their face lit up when the owner of the kennel offered them to see the chicken.  When we were leaving, the owner gave each of them a brown egg.

How awesome. I have never seen a chicken up close. How sad that even chickens get picked on.

It's nice to see children's eyes light up when they have never seen animals up close and person. Seems like you all have a nice day there.

I miss our chickens back home! My little boys had a pet chicken once before we left the Philippines. I'm sure your kids had a really fun time there. Their smiles show it all!

Back in Pampanga were we stayed for 3 years, ang dami kong alagang manok more than 100 na. I can feel the excitement your kids experienced since halos ganoon din ang na-feel ng mga anak ko. I wonder lang if anong breed ang chicken nila since it layed brown eggs. Rhode island red ba?

Awww! Sis Rose, you have beautiful kids. It looks like they have fun with the chickens and rooster. They will love to check out our chickens and our coop too. They well get along too.

It would be nice to have our own chicken coop that way we can have fresh meat and egg from our own farm.

Makes me smile, reminds me of my own kids who are so fascinated with chickens, they insist on having them as pets when we're home. lol. Cuties!

Indeed, seeing a live chicken is rare for kids nowadays.

I miss having our own chickens and harvest some fresh eggs. It sure is fun raising them. :) Someday we want to raise chickens and turkeys.

Algene said...
