Verde Farm Chicken Picks

Well, it’s that time again folks. It’s time for some chicken picking. Our feathered friends have certainly been busy this past week choosing our contest winners and picking their favorite blog posts for the week. I think they have some great posts to share, as well. I have to tell you, they amaze me with their interest and finds. Here are three posts from our farm friends the chicken branch wants to share.


Sunny D’Light’s Pick
Mourning Dove Cottage  is Donna’s blog, and she is quite the creative lady. Sunny was hooked when she saw Donna’s rooster tray on Mourning Dove’s latest post because she’s been missing her beau Edgar ever since the poor boy was chased from the chicken house by her and the other hens. Gang mentality, I guess. I don’t think she thought he would leave the house for good. So, when she laid eyes on the handsome fella depicted on Donna’s tray she had no other choice but to choose Donna’s blog as a sentimental chicken pick for this week. Donna paints all kinds of beautiful pictures, and can even do custom painting of your animals. I have to say, this was a great pick on Sunny’s part.



Charlotte’s Pick
As you may have noticed, Charlotte is quite the decorator. She longs for a beautiful, cottage coop to adorn with pretties and posies and perhaps a rusty item or two for balance. Well, she found The Unusually Unusual Farmchick this week who shared a post of the cutest coop you’ve ever seen. Like Charlotte, Tammie is a farmchick who likes to farm with style. She shares some amazing ideas to add vintage flair to any home, including the coop.


Plato’s Pick
Well, Plato has just about had it with this cold, snowy weather and now claims he wants to relocate to New Zealand. Yep, you heard me, he is actually considering flying the coop. He gets this way every winter, though. I know he’s not serious, but, if he ever did leave Verde Farm, I think we wouldn’t have any problem locating him--I would definitely begin my search for him at  Our Wee Farm. Laura lives in a beautiful part of the world and it’s no wonder Plato wants to fly away to this paradise. While he  shivers, shakes, and sometimes has to scratch in the snow for his cracked corn, Laura, at Our Wee Farm, has sunshine, flowers and veggies because it’s summer time in New Zealand An added plus for Plato are Laura’s donkeys. He has a soft spot for our donkeys, often catching a ride on their backs, so it was a no brainer he picked Our Wee Farm as his chicken pick. Plato chose well.



Well, that’s it for another edition of Verde Farm Chicken Picks. Go see what’s happening at these wonderful sites. The chickens are sure you will love them.

What a nice way to meet new friends. Thanks for sharing! Wish I were better at naming so I could have played in the contest. Frank has great taste! (Much better than tasting great ~ right Frank?)
Thanks very much for your kindness regarding our Kitty. She was one in a million but paved the way for more special kitties in The Farmers heart I hope!

Laura @ Our Wee Farm said...

aw thank you Amy and, of course, Plato! ( Plato, don't tell your mum, but you'd be welcome here any time ~ might have to catch a ride on one of those metal flying things, though because it's a really long way on chicken wings)
Off for a peek at the others now, but thanks loads xx

Awww. So sweet of Charlotte to share about me. Hopefully I will have the tutorial for the chandeliers up next week and have that Fancy coop done with Flair & style Charlotte would approve of.

Oooh, good picks from the coop! I love visiting the New Zealanders and Aussies this time of year. It's fun to see them gardening and enjoying the sunshine.
Oh, who am I kidding. It makes me miss summer! And maybe cry just a little bit. But it sure gets me in the flower mood.

Janice Grinyer said...

Do they pick out accessories too? I have this brown tunic that I want to pair with long black leggings & black suede boots but dont know what color to go with on a scarf... :D

Praise goodness for your chickens, otherwise I might not have been able to find these on my own. Yay Chickens!
