Chickens

 

Meet some of our flock!

This is Big Red, a Red Rock Chicken.  We just added her to the flock last spring.  A heavy breed of chicken, she has been a very consistent layer of beautiful brown eggs since November.

Floppy!

 

Floppy, the White Leg Layer, struts a big comb!  Her comb is so big and flimsy that it needs a little assistance from my 7 year old to appreciate its full size.  My little man likes to touch the warm, supple skin on her comb and waddle.  Somehow, she puts up with it.

 

Up Close and Personal

Floppy also likes to dash!  She will give you a good run, if you’re up for it.

Run, Floppy, Run!

 

 

Floppy's making a dash for it.

Big Red has gained so much weight this year that staying put is much more appealing to hear.

  1. Love the chicken story, do more . How about cleaning the coop ordeal? Best one of all the tales is when one of kids got locked in the chicken coop.
