THESE ARE MY FAVORITE GIRLS!
(In the chicken world, of course) Ivy (the boss lady), Cheeks, Bossa Nova (the more mature lady), and my favorite pet, Thorn. Great name, from my kid! (Oops, they are actually in reverse order. How do you work this stupid thing, anyway?)It fits her perfectly. I love it that they eat all the slugs I pick off the veggies! They don't seem to like the cabbage worms...who would have thought chickens could be so picky? Love them and the eggs:)
Trying to live sustainably in my new tiny hobby farm in the Appalachia foothills... 2 donkeys,lotsa chickens, a dog and a cat. And a 4-wheeler WHEEE! Goats are next once we get more goat-proof fencing LOL! Also some bits of cooking, political commentary, and microbiology. Varied interests make for an intriguing mind :)
