If you are thinking about it, don't miss out. You can sign up today through my website, and start ordering right away. Give me a holler if you have any questions, I would love to have you join my team.
A few of you have emailed me and asked how Fiji is doing. So I actually brought her inside today, and shut her up in my studio with me (that way Toby couldn't love on her…in his dog way…which I am assuming would not be good).
She sat on my shoulder for a bit.
This is me holding the camera way out and trying to get her all in the photo and not look like a duck, I mean a dork at the same time. She has only pooped maybe once by this time. Luckily not down my back.
So then I finally put her on the floor so she could walk around. She pooped a few more times. I mean this was like in 15 minutes, how many times does a chicken poop already? You never see that question on Jeopardy. "What is every 2 minutes, Alex?"
I sat down on the floor and she immediately climbed up on my knee and sat there. She is a little love. She then pooped on my pants and it was runny not the nice clean up kind like before, and I had to strip off my pants and stain stick them and put on some new ones, meanwhile she is following me around like a dog and comes with me into the laundry room. So then I am changed and we come back in my studio, and she just walks around with me…pooping every so often.
See how big she is getting? I still am pretty sure she is a Blue Cochin (see below), and still hoping she is a she.
I love her colors and she is going to be beautiful when she grows up. I was talking to my BFF Tracy the whole time she was in here pretty much, and she cleaned and preened her feathers the whole time. She would spread them out and then she would scooch down and sit on my knee, then she would preen some more. She was making her little contented noise, I should have taped it, I will next time.
Here she is standing on one leg and oh I see she has pooped yet again. I don't think you could have a chicken as a pet in the house very good could you? But she is such a love, and I am so glad she found a good home and that she was saved from being killed by something.
Here you can see her feathery little feet, I think by the time she is grown she will be all feathery. She has the longest fingernails too.
Well that is Fiji, and that will be my post for today, I have been mounting stamp sets, we are having a storm so I don't want to be on the computer too long.
Added since post: Cathy Hewlett was so kind to comment and let me know she is pretty sure Fiji is a White Brahma and after googling that, I do believe she is right…thanks Cathy!!!
I found this:
Have a blessed Sunday and thanks for stopping in.

I think Fiji could use some Depends!

Fiji is SO BEAUTIFUL Di! Thank you for sharing her pics with us – SUCH A PRETTY GIRL(?)!
The bird we had was so pretty (green, yellow, orange, blue) but such a little pooper. My DH would let him (Bud Bird) ride around on his shoulder and more often than not – the back of Jack's shirt would have poop droppings all over it….Birds poop like every 2-3 minutes….that's a LOT!
Love your little Fiji and look forward to watching her grown up and play in your studio (I've been in your studio and it's a really nice place to PLAY).

You just crack me up! I laughed so hard. Then I called my little girl over to sit in on my lap and read your post. I just can't tell you what a dose of sunshine you are every morning. I follow tons of blogs but I always have to click on yours first!!
Francis Santos says
See that's why I sent you that card. It was perfect for you!

How about some diapers for Fiji? I think she might need the preemie size from Pampers. She is darling. Thanks for the laugh this morning.

OMG, I'm still laughing over the Jeopardy reference! He/she is so pretty, and I love the feathery feet!
Dee in N.H. says
She's growing FAST. She's really pretty. I love how bonded she is to you. It's so funny something you may never have thought of as a pet can become a pet. She's a lucky little chick!!
Cathy Hewlett says
I just love to read your blog! I love your witty views on life! I've never commented before, but thought I would share with you. My husband and I have had chickens for about 8 years now. We have had the blue cochins and love them. They are more solid colored and have more feathers on their legs. I think what you have is a beautiful white brahma. They are really very regal looking when they have all of their adult feathers. Hope to see more!

OMG!! She is stinking cute! They are beautiful when they grow up too!
