2016 Karen's Critters

Living on a small farm Karen had lots of critters...

Like these four guinea hens

All four would line up on the front porch railing, but it was difficult to get a picture of them all together.  They were quick to fly off whenever I came near in an attempt to photograph them.

The two females were taking turns filling a nest full of eggs.

 The ducks had a little outdoor pen and bucket to swim in, but were also allowed to walk about freely when we were outside to keep an eye on them.

Both the ducks and the guinea hens were locked up in a shed at night to protect them from predators.

There were three cats in an outdoor pen, and another "demon" cat that was kept in the basement for everyone's saftey (and because of my allergies)

There was also this old girl,  Chantelle

This is Nikita and Adi (named for my MIL Ida)

and Raven (named for the Baltimore Ravens?)
I double dosed on my Zyrtec and survived most of the week.  By Thursday I was it was starting to bother me so I made sure to spend time not wallpapering/painting outside.


  1. That really is a lot of critters. I can not believe your allergies were not really crazy with all that fur and feathers around. That really was a lot for you. Do you go there every year to help?

    1. I my allergy meds morning and night (instead of just at night) and spending time outside I think helped too.

      No we haven't made regular trips to see her. He husband died february 2015 and this trip was to help her go through some of his stuff and just give her some help and motivation to get things done.
