Here's the Roadie...
Then there's the Plymouth Rock. This is our big bird. She is a great hen and a good layer. She lays a large light to medium brown egg with a touch of pink. and she seems to mingle well with the other big hens.
The Ameraucanas follows the Plymouth Rock around and get along with everyone. We have two of them. The Ameraucana's have tails and muffs unlike the Araucana breed. The all lay blue or green eggs.. or somewhere in between.
And then there's Squeekie, our sweet little Bantam hen.
I love this little hen. She is a chicken in a million.
Squeekie was checking out the cat box in the garage, the other day.
Squeekie checked out the cat's box and Annie watched her the whole time. But Annie never went over and discussed it with Squeek' or chased her away. I guess the have an agreement.. an understanding. Looking is OK, as long as Squeek' doesn't try to use it.
Annie is very patience with the chickens. I think she is a little afraid of them. She sits and watches them. She will even follow them around sometimes, but always at a distance and always with caution.
So the hens are laying again. The molt is over. We got three eggs a day this week and today we got four. Four eggs a day is plenty for us and the neighbors. So what do I use these beautiful eggs for, you ask?
Mixed up the dough...
I ate some cookie dough.
It's tradition. Fresh eggs allow this indulgent behavior.
A bad habit that, in 50 or 60 some years, has never made me sick.
Keep those eggs flowing.
