Fauna Friday: Chicken Edition

Two weeks ago, I noted this blog’s popularity among both the reptilian and amphibian sets.

Well, it seems that they’ve told some of their fine feathered friends, because now look what showed up at TRLEOOB*:

And lest you think that it’s simply a coincidence that all these animals keep coming to a blogger’s home specifically and that there’s no way any type of fowl (domesticated or otherwise) could possibly be an Our Shiputzim fan, allow me to introduce Exhibit B:

IMG_2058As you can see in the above picture, soon after the bird made its highly unexpected appearance (and thereby put a whole new spin on the term “free range”), it headed towards a dead tree stump.

Why is this significant, you ask?

Good question!

The answer is that the stump is what’s left of the tree we were forced to cut down about a year and a half ago.

Apparently, our avian visitor - clearly a longtime reader - remembered that post and decided to stop by in order to see the stump for itself…


And in other news, I just thought of a great idea for a main course on Shabbat



!שבת שלום ומבורך


*TRLEOOB=the real life equivalent of our blog


  1. Where DID it come from? One of the neighbors?

  2. Malke - We have no idea. Are you missing one? :-)

    Shabbat Shalom!

  3. oh shabbat shalom to you, too lady! i can always count on a smile (and a recipe!) here! thanks for that! truly. :)

  4. You made me smile too. I haven't cooked chicken with pineapple for ages.

  5. Why does this remind me of the scene from Giant where Elizabeth Taylor (?) figures out the bird she is eating on Thanksgiving was the one she played with the week before.

  6. Minnesota Mamaleh - Thank YOU for your sweet words!

    Ilana-Davita - Actually, to be perfectly honest, I made a turkey breast (not chicken) for Shabbat...

    Leora - LOL! Or Barbara Cohen's charming children's book, "The Carp in the Bathtub"...
