Verde Farm Chicken Picks



Hello farm friends, it’s time again for the chicken branch to leave the coop and share some of their favorite recent posts with you. They’ve been busy, busy, busy reading and choosing just a few they think you shouldn’t miss. Our consistent chickens have once again made great choices. So, without further adieu, Verde Farm Chicken Picks...

A little background for the hen picks this week:
Sometimes, random actions simultaneously occur for no reason. For example, you were just thinking about an old friend when lo and behold the friend calls--out of the blue. It’s always after the fact we might search for the reason or meaning behind “coincidence"--but usually there is no obvious explanation. Some things weren’t meant to be understood. Anyway, these topics have been flying around the coop lately because of two posts that happened in a serendipitous way. 


Sunny D-Light’s Pick:
Sunny D. and Charlotte were so excited about the post attached by Kim at My Field Of Dreams , which included a wonderful poem called “All I ever learned in life I learned from my hens” by Michael Oleson. They were beaming with pride once they read it and felt honored such a wonderful poem had been written about hens. We all decided to type it up, print it on pretty paper, get a nice frame and put it in the Heartbeak Hotel as part of Charlotte’s home decorating plan. Kim’s posts are always inspirational, spiritual and touch you deep inside. She often shares stories and poems she’s read and relates them to her own life. You won’t want to miss it.


Lady Charlotte Pedigree’s Pick:
Now, the serendipitous part: Kim posted on “Farm Friend Friday,” a blog party for farm life bloggers to get together and share posts. The poem Kim shared--which Charlotte, Sunny and I thought was an old one, and certainly written by farm women of long ago--actually wasn’t so old at all. In fact, the lady who wrote this poem just happened to join "Farm Friend Friday”the same day and saw Kim’s special post. Michaele Oleson from Sprout “n” Wings Farm was surprised to find her name and poem at “My Field of Dreams,” circulating many more miles than imagined. Coincidence or what?You can read Michaele’s post about this below. She also has a wonderful blog about her life as a single mom restoring a farm house and farming with animals and trolls. You won’t want to miss her either. 


Plato’s Pick:
Plato also found something he  knows you’ll love. He’s crowing about  Barn Charm by Tricia at Bluff Area Daily. This wise old rooster loves history. He’s spent many years studying old barns and books on farming in America and this blog is right down his alley. In fact, he gave it three chicken toes up. He is also thrilled to recommend Tricia’s blog party Monday evenings and continuing to Wednesday mornings, every week. Another don’t miss blog. 





Well, that’s it from the chicken coop.


We hope to see you at Farm Friend Friday this week.
Cluck, cluck
