How funny that they're just hanging out together. JC looks likes she's setting brood!

I can't believe June Carter is not trying to eat the chicken. What did you do to teach her they are not dinner?

That chicken is about three times her size! That's how!

I have a larger version of June (by the name of Buddy #2 - it's a long story). Anyhow, Buddy will curl up for hours in the straw of our Poultry Palace here at our farm in Iowa. He's a great mouser. And he and the girls get along fine. I agree with Jenna's size comment. I lost 10 chicks to one of the cats this spring, but once they get bigger, the tables can turn.

My kittens have been 'stalking' the chickens and the turkeys - that out weigh them 30lbs to 1. Careful for mice in the house with hay that close!

Great pic! While I was out in the chicken yard (fenced in) yesterday doing some cleaning up, I left the gate leaning closed but not latched, one of my cats (more of a barn cat than a house cat) ended up getting into the chicken yard. She was just coming in to see me, didn't really seem to even notice the full grown chickens. Once she was in, Boss Hog (which is what I call our hen who has taken over as leader of the pack) came running right at the cat, neck stretched out and ready for a fight. I scooped the cat up and quickly ushered her out. I'm sure the chicken would have gotten the better of the cat. I just thought it was funny that the chicken didn't even consider being afraid of the cat.

On another note; we got our chickens this spring, two Buff Orpingtons, 2 Barred Rock and 1 Araucana. They haven't started laying yet, and I'm getting a little concerned. I keep telling my husband that I must have done something to make them mad, and they're just not laying to spite me. Seriously though, they seem completely healthy, happy and content otherwise. Anyone have any suggestions? Am I just being impatient?

Looking for some warmth. Very cute! Hope JC is a good mouser.

One of your best pics yet! June Carter is just so beautiful, and so is the chicken. Is she a Dominique? All of it together with the hay and the fiddle looks so comforting. It makes me wanna climb through the computer and hang out with them!

Jenna, I returned your book back to the library, but I wanted to know what seed store you recommend? Thanks! -Stephanie
