We Want to See Your Backyard Farms

We received an awesome set of pictures from one of our readers. It is a four part series showing his daughter trying to pick up on of their chickens. He wants everyone to know that his chickens are very happy and his daughter normally does a good job of being gentle. Many of the factory farm chickens would love to be held by this cutie. This instance turned out to be a bit awkward, but it is fun to see one so young developing a love for backyard farming. 

The photos got us thinking. You all get to see our backyard farms often, but we don't get to see yours. Here is our challenge to you. We would like to make this blog about you next week. Send us a picture or a few pictures of your backyard farms and we will post them next week. We would be glad to include your blog address along with your picture if you would like. Send your pictures backyardfarmingblog@gmail.com along with your blog address if you want it included. We are excited to see what you have to show us. Let's show the world the part we are playing in being self sufficient.

And now, on to the pictures from our reader Michael.

Easy as 1............

So adorable!
As not much is growing in this heat, I don't have much to show. But I'll enjoy seeing everyone else's photos!

Sent you a few pics. It was so hard to pick just a few though since I have almost 700 to choose from! lol I take more pics of my animals than I do of my kids! You don't need to use all of them if you don't want to. I think I sent you 4. Most of my pics are posted on my blog, so anyone can see them there too. :)

Have a great day!
