This happened so fast…it’s all blurry but Dash really wants to play with ‘his’ girls!  They are not that crazy about it.

As ‘big brother’… I need to keep an eye out for my sisters.

The girls, Eleanor Roosevelt, Amelia Earhart and Rosa Parks (way in the back) were checking out the Secret Garden between the house and the garage.

Thanks, Dash, you are a wonderful ‘big brother’!


  1. What a sweet face Dash has there in the last picture! I see you are letting them roam wild and free!! Your girls have more wattle and comb than mine do. I am still ever so patiently (not) waiting for my first eggs!!!

  2. What awesome pictures...and fun!!

  3. Adorable Karen! I was hoping I would see some chickens when I am came! There big brother is so very sweet!Any eggs yet and is the chicken room doing? I LOVE your coop so much! Mine...been on hold for sooo long that I am thinking to do something diffident, He has the nice nesting boxes made in the piano but I am getting discouraged! As I said, I love youurs and your hany skills to do what you have done! You are my hero!


  4. PS...
    I just read you got your first egg! Yeah! So very exciting! They should eventually lay in the nesting boxes! Congratulations Karen! xo

  5. I love your chicken pictures!! Don't stop. I may eventually have some pictures of mine on.

  6. We have a toy poodle who loves following his feathered sisters around the garden too!
    You can never have too many chicken photos!

  7. Well you know me, I never tire of seeing your girls. Can you say "HOT LEGS"...
    They are so beautiful, can tell they are well taken care of.

    And smart too, they know a good thing and would not dare to run off.

    Dash is in training for becoming a hen herder.

  8. Thanks so much everyone! I do so love them. And Dash is a Bichon Frise...part Maltese and Poodle.

  9. Dash is doing a good job as the older brother, he has to watch out for the younger sisters. These pictures are adorable.

  10. I'm soooo behind on reading blogs. Sure glad I didn't miss these precious pictures!!! Your secret garden is beautiful and your girls and Dash....... HOW CUTE IS THAT!!!!!

  11. Too cute! When I had my chickens, my Maltese was none to happy that they were around. But she was quite a prima donna and thought that ALL attention should be directed toward HER. ;)
