Kismet brought Hazel and Myrtle for a visit in January 2008. We adopted them, making a home in our back yard, which is where this blog begins. Betty, Lulu and Zelda are our new family of hens!

After talking to the guys at Buck Moore, I think I got two Barren Rock hens eggs yesterday and today. They are tiny. No go on the two other hens, but tonight they put themselves to bed, which is a nice step in the right direction.
Betty is a very Huang chicken. She eats non stop. She will jam her head through the fencing to get a blade of grass a foot away. I put out a 20oz jar of food this afternoon and it was 3/4 gone in ten minutes. Working on getting some netting for the run. I bought some, but a friend offered a roll, so I'll gladly use that.
Anxious to let them roam, but I need help clipping their wings. That is not a one person job.
