Funny Faces at the petting zoo

What is it about having chickens and roosters running around that make me want to go live on a farm? Maybe it’s a case of wanting what you don’t have (or didn’t grow up with).



Faces only a mother could love. The first turkey looks like she has a crocheted scarf over her head.




None of the animals were really paying attention to me which is fine.

I spent a recent morning at my favorite neighborhood petting zoo/horse farm. Not much has changed since I was there last spring. No early spring babies there yet.  HorsePower for Kids, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization who provides a farm and petting zoo for people who would benefit from interaction with animals and horses. They are a wildlife/rehabilitation farm and most of the animals were rescued.

  1. Hello, this petting zoo sounds like an awesome place for the children. I always wanted to live on a farm too. I love all the animals, adorable photos. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

  2. That sounds like a wonderful place; surely provided you with some great photo ops. I like to watch chickens too and roosters. Our daughter and sil keep a few chickens on their acreage and we enjoy them when we’re in Oregon. And the eggs.
