One of My Favorite Sounds...

Is baby chicks cheeping away!!  We just picked up our order of Buff Orpington chicks--we lost all but one chicken to a fox who actually figured out how to undo the coop latch a couple months ago.  We now have the little cuties tweeting away in our living room (for now!).  I just love their little fuzz-butts, too!!  Having new life in the house is such a nice feeling!!

  • Hi Kimmy
    Are you serious little chicks how lucky are you to experience that. Do you raise them and then use them for meat? When I was a kid we raised ours in our front room with a light dropped down to keep them warm. Then when they got big enough we did the "you know what" and what a mess. We had this huge silver pot my Dad would ---- them and throw them in hot water, then we had to take the feathers off so Mom could cut them up and wrap them for the freezer. I had ten brothers and sisters we had a farm grew all our food, I know all about milking a cow, weeding a huge garden, making butter and ice cream etc. My children spent their summers down with Grandma and Grandpa which gave them memories so many children miss out on today. It was a hard life but I would not have traded it for anything.
    My son owns a cabin in an area we wanted to do just that go back to the good life but with my current health it has been put on the back burner. So enjoy for me I know just what you are talking about so dang cute.
    One of my favorite sounds is the river running behind my son's cabin and the songs of all the birds up there.

  • Sherri--this particular breed is good for their big, bee-yoo-tee-ful brown eggs.  They're not really a "meaty" bird. We did try butchering a few in the past, but the effort outweighed the reward.  That's how we did it--pot of hot water and all.  I didn't have chickens until I was an adult, but my late father farmed whatever land we had!!   We love the Buffs--they're gentle and social, and nothing beats the sound of a rooster's crow at dawn!  Of course, he's a little young to be crowing right now.
    After we lost our other birds to the fox, the remaining hen actually attempts to crow!!!!  It is the craziest, funniest sound!!  It's like she almost knows how much we miss the sound of the rooster, so she does her best to try to imitate his crow.  Oh my goodness, my husband and I just lay in bed and laugh...

    William--as crazy as this sounds, my favorite Mark Knopfler music was the soundtrack for the movie, The Princess Bride.  That guy is one amazing musician!!  Love your additions to the favorite sounds!!

    Well, I'll follow William here (though I do know that sweet sound of chickies):

    * the sound of a lone trumpet playing long and slow
    * the sound of snow falling on snow (you hear it on a very cold, dark night in Alaska )
    * the sound of an ice cold beer being cracked open on a hot, worry free afternoon 
    * the first sounds your baby makes right after birth (that should probably be listed before beer cracking...totally unintentional)
    * the sound of a lake lapping in the middle of the night
    * whipporwhills calling to each other when you are perched on a smoky mountain top
    * the sound of prayer flags flapping when you are sitting on a rooftop in pelling, india and the clouds just parted to reveal another awesome height of Himalayas
    * when you are sitting on your deck on a carefree day listening to the distant hums of lawnmowers and men (or maybe women) tinkering with wood and nails
    * the sound of your doctor telling you they just sent your pain med prescription in ( :D)

    That was awesome! Thanks! Sorry for the highjack, kimmy. P.s. don't eat the chickies! 

  • Sharing nice sounds is NOT a highjack!!
    Let's keep it going!!  Who's next?? :D

    Welcome to Spine-Health

  • the squelching sound of snow as you walkin a virgin field on a verrry cold nite

    not a sound, but in keeping with  the snow--the blue of a completely virgin snowy field at twilight...breathtaking!
