Hello, world. Meet my chickens.
This is Big Red; she’s a 9-month-old Road Island Red hen. She’s pretty shy, but she’s a good (egg) layer.
Also, she looooves bread.
This is Tootsie. She’s the youngest at 4 months, and she’s also a Road Island Red hen. She hasn’t yet laid any eggs, but she should in a few months.
Next, meet Mabel. She is a Buff Orpington, and she’s very friendly and curious. She’s about 6 months old and has laid a few times.
Lastly, meet Gertrude (The Prude). She refuses to let me photograph her properly just yet, but she is HUGE and the oldest hen. She’s a year-old Buff Orpington, lighter in color than Mabel.
Hello, ladies! Your human mom might be a little crazy with this mini-farm, but you are four VERY loved and VERY spoiled chickens.
