Friday Randoms



This is the scene you get when you try and sneak a photo of your sweet chickens out for a free range afternoon.  Typically, they stay close to their coop.  Now they have decided the entire Farmette is their oyster.  


Garden and Gun magazine has just published their 5th Annual Made in the South Awards.  Worth checking out, if you enjoy handmade, quality products. 


I think you can have anything you want for Thanksgiving, but this turkey made out of hot dogs is a bit much for me.   


I am patiently waiting for Alan Bradley's new book about Flavia de Luce to come out in January.  I high recommend the series. 


You know we need some music for this Friday.  Relaxing or motivational....you choose.   


Go forth and have a fantastic weekend, my friends!  Linking up with Tanya today!

  8. The hot dog turkey is an interesting concept! I think I'll stick with real turkey though! Free-range chickens are happy chickens!

  16. You are lucky you can let your hens out.. if we did, they'd be dead very quick. We have raccoons, skunks and coyotes around here and have lost several chickens to them, even in broad daylight! Now we keep ours in a Fort Knox pen. Even then, one stuck it's head out of the fencing to nibble on the green grass outside and something grabbed it's head and killed it. ((hugs)), Teresa

  17. I had chickens like that once, I think they were Delaware or at least a cross with that breed.

  19. Chickens are just like kids when you want a decent photo, they won't cooperate at all.
    I couldn't pick between the 2 songs as I like them both.
    However I most certainly do NOT want a turkey made out of hot dogs, that's just wrong.

  28. Someone really needs to get a life, if all they have to do is make a turkey out of hotdogs. I wonder what they did with it? I hope they didn't eat it.

  30. I enjoyed the photo of your chickens. I have this memory of my nephew when he was young, standing in the doorway of the chicken coop, waiting for a chicken to lay an egg. I think they needed their privacy :) Nice random 5, thanks for the links.

  31. Wow, the turkey is worthy of the ultimate creative art ... I'll leave it on the plate however, visually enjoy it and pretend I don't know what the usual activity is that we do with food :-)
