The chicken whisperer

That's Evan's favorite chicken, who Ashton has named 'Little Red Robin Hood'. We have 4 others; Marley, Clucker, and the twins - Millie and Vanilli. Evan is very good with the chickens as you can see. Amazingly enough, he hasn't been pooped on yet.

The chickens all run for cover when Ashton enters the yard. He just loves them a little too much sometimes. I have also caught him trying to ride them, trying to make them fly, and giving them rides down the slide. But he is the champion chicken-herder since they run for the coop whenever he comes near.


My sister's kids loved playing with the chickens when they were here this spring. They sat there playing with them for hours...

So good to read your blog again. Looks like your having a fun summer. Never heard of Goblin Valley,
and from the looks of it I know why :) Would you like a llama to add to the chickens or a rabbit we have a few
of both! Ashton reminds me of Alison and Wendell we've had a lot of strange animals around here believe me. Enjoy the times there great. Aunt Mary
