A Very Chickenlandia Halloween

It’s no secret to my friends and family that while I love the changing seasons, I definitely prefer when they are changing into Spring or Summer. It’s true, despite having a Canadian husband I’m no fan of colder temperatures. The way I get through these months is by jumping head-first into the holidays. I absolutely love them, and Halloween is no exception. This year, I’ve decided to share my love for all things spooky by having A Very Chickenlandia Halloween.

We usually go all-out for Halloween, with a haunted house on our covered porch every year. Since I have young kids I like to keep it on the less terrifying side, but we do have a flying ghost and a large jumping spider! Costumes vary and we’ve certainly enjoyed our share of different chicken costumes, but this is one of my favorite pics ever:

What could make one of my favorite holidays even better? My chickens, of course! Last year, you might remember my very silly trailer for the obscure cult film Chick-o-ween 2: Second Hatch. This year, I’ve taken it up several notches and created a short film for all my fans to enjoy. (FYI – I’m pretty confident this won’t scare little kids, but you never know! It does have spooky music and I look kinda scary in it LOL, so maybe give it a watch first if you have really young ones.)

I hope you love this Chickenlandia Halloween Special! It’s the sixth episode in my series Chickenlandia Stories, and it’s called The Creature! You may recognize the narrator as my grumpy but lovable rooster, Philippe:

Chickenlandia Makeover Update plus Halloween FUN!

My friend Julie came again this week to help with the great Chickenlandia Makeover of 2018 and beyond! I’ve also been very busy working on some Halloween fun for Chickenlandia that I’m super excited about. But first, let’s talk about a little problem I have that maybe you can relate with. It’s super scary so it kinda goes with the Halloween theme. Can we talk about CLUTTER???

Keepin’ it real cluttery.

I’m not ashamed to say my house has a little clutter. In fact, I’ve kind of made it a point on my YouTube channel to not hide the fact that I’m an actually person who lives in a house that isn’t perfect, and I’m the proud owner of a chicken yard and coop that aren’t perfect either. I have some neighbors with immaculate homes and I think it’s great, but I have no idea how it’s accomplished. I mean, that’s some special kinda sorcery that I know nothing about.

Me with anything that has to do with cleaning.

But I do admit, clutter can get out of hand. And when it does, it can make you feel pretty darn yucky. That’s why I’m so grateful to my friend Julie who came by again this week to help me with some old Chickenlandia clutter. And when I say old, I mean ANCIENT. There was a plastic container in the yard that I’m pretty sure has been in the same spot, unopened, for about five years. She told me whatever was in it was SCARY. I believe her.

A very BIG spider.

Speaking of scary, I’ve also been working on some fun Halloween stuff for Chickenlandia. Some of you that have been following me for a while might remember the very first creative video I put out on Facebook last year around Halloween. It was a trailer for a movie called Chickoween 2: Second Hatch (which doesn’t actually exist LOL). It’s so funny watching it now after having my YouTube channel for a while. I’ve definitely grown as a filmmaker! To see an update on Chickenlandia’s Makeover, see all my clutter disappear with the magic of my friend Julie, AND see a sneak peek at this year’s Chickenlandia Halloween video, click on my YouTube video below!

If the clutter of your life was a movie, what genre would it be? Horror (yikes), Fantasy (keep dreaming it will go away with magic), SciFi (other worldly), or Romantic Comedy (the fault of your partner LOL)? Let me know in the comments!
