Not them.


This morning, when rain that flooded the river turned to pelting-down snow, the donkeys, goats, chickens, and one overgrown baby cow hid in the shelter of the goat pen under the porch. Except this one rooster.

The animals love to peck at the fallen seed scraps under the bird feeders. When everybody ran in from the weather, this rooster said, “I’m the man. I’m the man! MINE, IT’S ALL MINE.”

He looks quite dashing, don’t you think? He’s going to see the ladies next.

“I know they want me.”

    OMG!!! just like a man. can’t even find his way in out of the rain…

  3. Miss HomeEcs Daughter says:

    Neither rain, sleet, snow or the dark of night will keep him from his rounds…no wait that’s someone else…Nothing like a be-raggled Rooster. :chicken:

    Gluttony overrides common sense. He is a male, after all. πŸ˜†

  5. CherShots says:

    Just like a male – run to a female for warmth, love and comfort!
    ‘hugs from afar’

  6. Ramona says:

    Well those guys just don’t know when to come in. I caught my husband sneaking around the yard when Hurricane Katrina blew thur MS. That was until I screamed at him and made him come in before a tree fell on him.

  7. Lindsay says:

    Lol! Silly guy! He must have been so excited to see no one was milling around the buffet table.

  8. Jill from Spencer says:

    if the chickens are out in rain, it is going to rain all day. If it is raining and they are inside, it will quit soon!

    That bird feeder photo is exquisite. Just lovely

  10. Renee says:

    Now all you need to do is make him some ear muffs and a scarf and he’ll be ready to take on those ladies out there in the snow! πŸ˜†

  11. Diane says:

    Living up to the term “bird brain.”

  12. Julia says:

    Where does BP go when it snows?

  13. Jeannie says:

    That is hilarious. I’m telling you….these animals would be the perfect stars of their very own childrens book!

  14. Window On The Prairie says:

    He looks like something the cat dragged in. πŸ™‚

  15. Dianna says:

  16. langela says:

    I’m with Rah. The first picture is stunning!

  17. Nancy in Iowa says:

    Now, commenters, be careful what you say – who do you think is out in the rain/snow taking the photos?!!!!!!! Or do you have a hugely powerful zoom lens, Suzanne? Giggle!!!

  18. Miss Becky says:

    He be a fool. I guess something can be said for being in the right place at the right time to get the extra food, but man, he’s having a bad hair day.

  19. Joell says:

    Just like a man, goofy enough to want to strut their stuff in the pouring down icy rain–dont have the sense God gave a goose–oops πŸ˜‰

  20. brookdale says:

    Hence the saying, “madder than a wet hen”!

  21. marymac says:

    I have a question…..uummm, Suzanne . do you eat your chickens?

  22. Rhonda says:

    Oh, Man, the cold feet.

  23. Shelly Messier says:

    :chicken: That is so funny, he must be really hungry. He doesn’t care about the cold! :chicken: :chicken: :chicken:

  24. Linda says:

    Just like a M A L E…….has to prove something! πŸ˜†

  25. Carol says:

    He’s probably humming (I mean clucking) “I’m your man.” πŸ™‚
