No Not Chickens on the Menu

I'm always eager for those moments of unexpected joy on a daily basis and one way to accomplish that this last Tuesday was a visit to some fellow chickens not far away. There's no time to waste soaking up all the sunshine we can and afternoon breezes as we all know what arrives here in the future of Minnesota. 

Sorry precious chickens everywhere the sign reads "Chicken Dinners" in Frankenmuth, Michigan, and you're just in time for 


  I'm also posting to City Daily Photo.

Yikes, run for your life fellow chickens, unless you want to be served on dinner plates.

This is me running fast!

Help, I'm all fenced in.

Some chickens don't really care what they're serving for dinner.

Happiness is an inside job.

Why do they say owls are wise?

Because of their mysterious and all seeking nature they say.
Honestly, it's also their heightened senses and association with the night, and of course their night vision, in particular, which impressed the Ancient Greeks.

"The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires."

With chickens flooding the limelight I thought maybe an owl and one of my daughter's cats taking an afternoon snooze should round off this critter post today.

Lou-Lou being lazy, as her life is so good, especially when the wild and crazy big white dog is outside playing.

and that's a wrap for today's Saturday Critters. Thanks for stopping in and gifting me with your thoughts and comments, they always make my day.
and another thought-

"The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existence. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery each day."

Loving your chickens/chooks. And yes, they are related (distantly) to the ones featuring on my Sunday Selections post.
A big hooray for cats, owls and inspiring teachers too.

Beautiful chickens in your photos. They look as though they are loved and treasured. These days I don't like to eat chickens, I think the ones on battery farms live a bad life and I can get by eating something else!
That is a good quote from Einstein, and so true.

Now that is a water sculpture that will definitely have me asking what in the world? Love this chicken post, so funny. I needed that smile.

If chickens have anything to do with judgment, the dude who started that Frankenmuth restaurant is going to be beside Col. Sanders in an Avian Hell.
