2)Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered.
3)Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.



I'm not going to do the seven things about yourself thing. But I will give a fun and intersting fact:

"Bwaarrk!" is chicken speak for "Threat approaching from the ground."
Yes, chickens have a language too.
 Fascinating huh? (I've been holding onto that for a while now wondering how I could incorporate it into a blog post - lol) Do you have any fascinating or funny trivia you'd like to share?

 I'd like to pass on these awards to those in the list below. Please feel free to pick the one award you'd like.

  12. Do chickens have words for 'congrats on your awards - you deserve them all!'

    They don't? I'm shocked!

  15. Sharon, Macy is so cute. Pets have a wonderful way of communicating (most times) ;) And you are most welcome :)

    Helen, the chickens look at my funny when I try to speak their language. I don't think I have the dialect right ;)

    Natascha, thanks

  16. Rcubes, blessings to you :)

    Jemi, oh yes, they do have words for that. It's "Bwaaaaaaagrats!" (not sure if I spelled it right ;)

    Charmaine, um-ah. I felt bad because one of them I received about 2 or 3 weeks ago.

  19. Best. Chicken. Trivia. EVER. I now feel compelled to share a random animal fact.

    Did you know that wild Chinchillas roll in dust to keep the oils out of their fine fur coats. It's true. I had one for 7 years (RIP, Rocky!) and I had to buy bags of ground up lava rock for him to roll in.
