Chicken Chasing....

 This isn't the best picture, but you get the idea. I laughed so hard at Emma chasing this little red hen. She gets the chickens out to roam the yard after she has put the dog up. Sam would love to help her catch them. LOL
  Emma asked her mom (Liz) if they were going to eat the chickens when they were older. Liz said she really did not know how to respond. She thought a minute and said, "well maybe" She thought  Emma might be up-set about that. But Emma then asked her, "Can you make nuggets with them ?" :):) Kids !!!
  Hope you are having a very nice day. I will do making last minute plans.  xo

    1. Patti, We ate our chicken pets growing up. We would get a free chick from the Hy-Line chicken/egg place for Easter. Each of us. We named them raised them and ate them. A chicken must not be too smart to stick around our house with some many kids chasing them. xoxo,Susie

  3. I was chicken chasing about a year ago, trying to save our neighbors chickens from a dog. It wasn't funny! I can't run like that anymore!!! I suppose eating nuggets would be like eating Mrs. Paul's fish sticks (remember those-not sure they still sell them). If they don't actually LOOK like chicken.....

  4. Out of the mouths of babes!

    We have many friends whose children raise pigs through 4H and sell them at the fair in the summer. The kids know all along that Roscoe or Fred will be sold or eaten.

    1. Carol, Some kids make good money this way...helps pay for a bit of college. My daughter once went to the farmer where they get there beef, and ask to see what cow was hers...he laughed and said he had never known anyone wanting to see the meat still on the hoof. xoxo,Susie

    1. Patty, If you saw Emma running all bent over like that...too funny. I do not know much about cherry other than I like them. My daughter had some trees once and the birds were the worry for her...they would eat them as fast as they ripened. xoxo, Susie

  16. reading this brings b ack memories of being in Italy and watching my aunt go to the chicken coop and select a chicken for dinner, then watching her trying to...uh...usher the chicken into the afterlife and being unsuccessful until my grandfather came along took the chicken and ushered the chicken into it's afterlife tout suite. It was a lot different than going to the meat dep't in your local grocer and picking up a whole roaster. Still tasty though.

    1. We used to watch our parents "wring" the chicken's neck..gross, then the chickens would still flop around with their heads. so scary. I don't Emma would want to see that. Too funny your granddad had to help your aunt, after a failed attempt. Happy Father's Day...not sure you are one but enjoy the great day just the same, xoxo,Susie

  17. hahaha Emma......she's a girl after my own heart. She is certainly a well rounded young lady. Her mom and grandma raised her well. I can just see her running after that red hen.

    Have a wonderful week, Susie.

    love,
