It's Still Winter!

Have you ever noticed that as soon as Christmas is over,

stores and catalogs start showing spring and summer wear?

They call it cruise-wear or resort-wear....

as if everyone heads to a warmer climate after the holidays.

Well....not us,

not here at Bee Haven Acres.

No, we remain in our thermals, wool sweaters, hats and gloves

until the weather starts warming....sometime in April.

Not to be outdone by the goats,

our chickens had a bit of a fashion show, themselves, yesterday.

They refused to model resort wear, though,

and stuck to winter basics instead.

Modeling the latest in henwear are


and Natasha.
Many thanks to fellow blogger Anke of Our Piece of Heaven
for knitting these wonderfully fashionable scarves
for our turkens (Transylvanian Naked Neck Chickens).
Anke was amongst the few of you who thought that
our dear gals needed some warm neckwear for winter.

I think you may have found a niche market Anke....
You might be on to something here!
And yea, for not sending us any resort wear!!

PS...Hubbs thought I should call this piece "Hot Chicks in the Country".
Again, I repeat....this is a family rated blog.

What a great idea for the turkens. Do you think she could knit little tiny turken hats too? Just think about little leg warmers. :)

Anke said...

That is too funny! Hope it keeps them cozy... :-) No cruise wear here either, even though our freezing temps are supposed to come to an end.

Oh my gosh, what a great idea. Some people are so creative and this is a fun creation. I know the turkens love them and yes they are "Hot Chicks".

Love the scarfs. Your feather friends look warm and fashionable. Love the topics that your husband comes up with. Like I mentioned before, my dh would probably would have come up with the same topic title.
