Chicken Run
 is one of My Chickens favorite movies to watch on our “Friday Night, Movie Night” 

— it is funny and in the style of the hilarious and totally charming Shaun the Sheep 

and the classic Wallis and Grommit.

Three Saturdays ago we made our own chicken run… My and the kids (My Chickens) and what fun it was!!  I have to tell you… as a Momma, to be exposing my kids to these corny, fun experiences is quite a trip.  I tried explaining to them that their friends don’t get to build bonfires every afternoon and drive out to the middle of nowhere on a Saturday morning to load up their Suburban with poultry!  

These are our adventures.

These are the days.

It’s been three weeks, and quite frankly, not at all convenient… on nights when our necks and backs just can’t handle the air mattresses at the farm we sleep at our home “in town” but we have to drive out to the farm at the end of the day to lock them up and give them fresh water.  Ugh.  

Now accepting gas card donations.
I swear, we are totally gas poor these last six weeks.  

But the egg count goes up every day (the birds are young) and today we got 12 eggs!  (We have 16 birds).

So, here are some clips of our chicken run to go get 
“The Half Way Hens”
or “Les Poules de (la?) Ferme a Mi-Chemin”

Yes… even though the translation does not work for us meaning that our farm is “half way to our dreams of our OWN farm someday” (remember, we are renting)… we have decided to go with “a mi-chemin” because our farm is located half way down the road we are on and that is closer to the literal translationplus, it sounds fricken awesome 🙂

Here is my silly phonetic example for the non-French speakers…
“La Fairm ah mee sh-men”

Yea, yea… I said “Barred” wrong

Love it when you snap at your kid on video don’t you???  
Keepin’ it real.

Enjoy — I do have more videos… some crazy ones… but ugh… it’s the sound of my own voice you know???
