My Hens....an update.

Since Beeky died two days ago, another chicken has decided to become ultra friendly and cute. Here she is hanging around our front steps. See the green in her feathers?? I just love it!! Do you remember how ugly they were when I first got them???
Amazing what some new feathers will do :)

I figured while I was at it, I might as well try to take pictures of all SEVEN of them. They are quite shy, so this is the best I could come up with.

I might as well go ahead and name these ones as well. Hmmmm The one above? She is SUZY.

I like the bright red comb on this one. Don't let her fool you. She is no rooster. Did you know that all hens have different sized combs? I'm going to call her RED.

This one is seriously ugly. She reminds me of the movie The DARK Crystal. If you remember it, you will remember those ugly vulcher like thingys.

I have 'lovingly' called her BALDY....for obvious reasons.
This one with the skinny neck is HOPPY. She is the one with the bad leg. I have to admit that I thought she was not going to make it through the winter. However, this gal has outlasted 3 of her companions.
This one is the average one. Really I can't find anything remarkable about her. I think I'll call her JOEY (for average Joe)


This one has really dark eyes. Kind of creepy. Oh!! I'll call her CREEPY.

Last but not least is this Gal. She is not a rooster despite what others say. She gives me eggs people!! not a rooster. So...she is ROOSTER.
