|Little Red - Trying to work out if the camera is edible|
Then there is "Little Red" the matriarch and top chicken. She often looks a little battered and a lot older than her 18 months of age but she is very inquisitive and our best layer. I would guess that she has laid 360 eggs in the last 365 days and it is easy to tell if she has laid as her eggs are different in colour to the others.
|B1 - Gradually getting her feathers back after her moult|
B1 (stands for Bantam 1) she used to have a partner in crime, B2, however sadly B2 went to chicken heaven at the hands, or should I say mouth, of a neighbours dog. B1 is my favourite, she is a Cochin Bantam and the only one of the flock who can be handled with ease, not that she really likes it. She is 2IC despite being a bantam and keeps the young chickens in line. When she runs she looks like an old time lady hitching up her skirts and running it is so very cute to watch.
