The One with the Attack Chicken

Like everyone else around here, Billy and I spent the weekend taking the kids out and about to enjoy the lovely weather. We hit Drumlin Farm early on Saturday morning. And with two sets of adult hands (and feet, for chasing), the kids got to spend a lot of time out of their strollers. Naturally, they loved it.

I forgot to bust out the camera until the end when we got to the chicken coops. But rest assured that they loved the cows, pigs, sheep, horses, goats and birds we saw. Here is Colie, getting a closer look at the hens:

And here is Sebastian, following suit:

As I was taking this picture (and seeing what a weird face Sebastian made), Billy was warning me that the chicken was going to bite Sebas' finger. But I'm stubborn and I really wanted to get a shot of him looking normal that I ignored the warning. And about 7 seconds after this was taken, the chicken attacked. Poor Sebas. Lesson learned, buddy. Lesson learned.

But despite the pecking incident, we had a very fun time. This afternoon, I signed us up for a family membership. If you live nearby, you should, too: just go here. We'll get our money's worth in 5 visits so really, its a no-brainer. Plus, you can buy yummy things like eggs, meat and veggies at their farm stand. I have some of their Italian sausages waiting for me to cook. I'll let you know how they are! :)


  1. Ow! I've been literally henpecked, and it hurts!

    Glad you had an otherwise good time. I think back to being pregnant, and have no idea where you find the energy to chase Colette and Sebastian!

  2. I was thinking about a membership this year too! I think I am going for a membership here and the zoo. I can imagine it being well used. We had a ton of fun last year with Michael and now that the twins are older, I think all 3 will have a blast. Thanks for the reminder!

    Glad you guys had a great time. How much were the eggs? I'd love to hear how they are. We love getting fresh eggs!

  3. They were out of eggs when we were there so I don't know how much they cost. Sorry!
