Chigiy, so many garden blogs feature chickens, and I was feeling a little deprived since my subdivision does not allow them. Your tragicomic saga of Mr Peeps is making me rethink the whole idea... what odds that if I tried to sneak a couple in they'd crow rather than lay eggs?

PS Would you like me to put a link to your garden blog on my sidebar? I've noticed your comments on Blogger don't link here, and know many people would love to read your posts.

Thanks Annie, I would love a link.

Do you have friends that have chickens?
I have two friends very close by, so I get the best of both worlds.

Keeping chickens can be a lot of work. Instead I keep two children.


Dear Chigiy,

As soon as I read about them, I wanted to see the nakedchicksontheweb.

Am I a hopeless pervert?

Fortunately, the site seems to require a username & password.

Please advise. Is there any help out there for freaks like me? Or can you share Simon or Kathleen's e-mail? (The kids would love chicken-cam).

Love the story. Great blog!

I have contacted Gismo Guy regarding chicken-cam. I will have an answer soon:)
I'm glad you"re enjoying my blog.
Come back soon.


Ah, and he seems so sweet an innocent in the photos.


Thank you very much for this great post. I was laughing out loud, but also changing my mind about having chickens here myself.


Kylee, I hate being the one to change your mind about chickens, a chicken pooper if you will. I'm sure Sarah at Farming Friends would have a different take on the whole chickens as pets thing. It just wasn't for me...or Bob.


Hello Chigiy ,

I hope I am not invading your privacy in any way and that this e-mail
is not construed as spam. If it is then I apologise for the

I was looking at your blog and i injoyed it and noticed your interest in chickens.
I have an on-line diary on 5 ex-battery chikens which is updated every day.
At present I am compiling a page on 'Funny Chicken Photo's'. However, at
the moment the page only has a few photos on it. Do you have any funny photos
of your chickens, ducks or turkeys that could be included to the page?
Of course full credit would be given to you along with a link to your
blog. If you do have any that you would like to share could you send them to me attached to this e-mail address along with any details comments you would like included with the photo.

your visit and find something of interest.

Oh Dear, I have to tell you I stumbled upon your blog at work and I was literally holding my mouth shut so I did not laugh out loud at my desk. . . I was completley entertained by your story and poor Bob. . . Bless his heart.
Anyway I am somewhat in the same situation as we live in the country and we have a number (somewhere near 20) of chickens, two turkeys and 3 Gineas (annoying little boogers they are too) anyway, I digress, we have some chickens my husband says are Iowa blues but they are black and the roosters (there are 2 of them) have what looks like a grey feathered turtleneck on. . . amusing birds really. they are small the other birds pick on them, they fly out of the chicken pen and roam the yard, my flower beds in particular. Thank goodness they dont eat my flowers but the scratch and dig in the dirt, totally disrupting any mulch I might have wanted to keep in place, and occasionally in their more agressive scratching moments they will expose the roots of one of my flowers. . . I have found that keeping a water gun handy by the door is quite an entertaining way to encourage them to move away from my phlox and dahlias. They are begining to crow too and your description of that sound was right on I had not considered just how much they sounded like a dying bag pipe until now. Thank you for sharing.
