...sometimes even a single feather is enough to fly. (Robert Maclean)


chicken doormat

Friday I came home to a surprise waiting at the doorstep.
At first I thought it was a photo of our very own chickens!
It sure looks like Brahmy and Buffy...
But the second russet-colored hen is what gave it away...
These aren't our girls at all,
but they're still some nice looking hens!
Turns out you actually can get a personalized photo doormat.
I googled several different places...
So if you want one of your chickens, your dogs,
or whatever else excites you --
Personalization Mall seems to be one of the least expensive options.
While these aren't our very own chickens, it sure is fun to arrive home
and be greeted by any kind of chickens. 
Is it functional?
Not so much...  but even if it were,
I don't think I'd feel comfortable
stomping my feet or wiping some mud on their little faces and feathers.
Basically, the mat also serves as a good reminder...
I get home from work, see the chickens at my feet,
and think to myself
"Awwww! I bet the girls would like a visit..."
And so I change into my comfies and boots and head out to the coop...
I say it's for the chickens, but really, it's for me...
The chickens are great therapy
after a day at work.
I ask them for advice on difficult matters
and they never steer me wrong!
Every day they tell me:
Don't worry, be flappy.
