Thursday Dose of Cute: Chicken Crossing

Chicken Crossing

©, the crawling with critters foodie farm blog where I've decided that what this place needs is more signage. We still have this one (which I love), there's a little sign in the barn that says SHEEP COUNTRY, and last year I couldn't resist a round metal sign that says MANURE MOVERS OF AMERICA (I can't even imagine life without my marvelous sheep manure), but now I'm thinking CHICKEN CROSSING, SHEEP CROSSING, TREAT ROOM, BIG DOGS ON DUTY, STOCK DOG AT THE READY, WELCOME TO DONKEYLAND, and of course at the entrance to the barn during lambing season, WARNING: SERIOUS CUTE OVERLOAD INSIDE. Is 20 degrees too cold to cut up a few pieces of wood and get out the weatherproof sign paint?


  1. Susan, I've followed your blog for several years now, and can't wait to get the daily in my email... I love your writing and I love your farm, considerably bigger than ours but so like it. You are such an inspiration!

  2. I think the Donkeyland sign should use the same type font that is used for Disneyland.

  3. If only I could have some chickens - too, too adorable! (Come to think of it...don't I say that about all the cuties on your farm?? Only 'cuz it's true!)

  4. A friend referred me to your blog. I'm dieing to know where you live because I also live on 200+ acres in remote Missouri. We actually have a lot in common. I have chickens, a LGD dog (Akbash-Pyrenees mix), 7 cats, and we're looking into getting horses/mules. I also garden and cook - baking is my favorite, unfortunately. I grew up a city girl and it took most of my life to get to the country, but I love it out here. The steep learning curve is exhilerating!

  5. Looking at your pic, I can't help but hear Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder in my head.

  6. Don't forget a "Farmgirl Fare Susan lives here" sign for all of us followers! ;)


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
