How sweet...

Last weekend, we added two buff Orpingtons to the flock. These two are still being integrated into the flock. When I went to let them out this morning, they were perched on the side of the canoe (which hangs from the ceiling in the barn). I couldn't help but laugh.

Now did you tell your new girls that according to Wiki, they rarely fly? They sure are pretty.

Well, they can fly--but not very far. Their names are Agatha and Prudence since they are a British breed. They are still fairly young, so we probably won't see any eggs from them until spring. The barred Plymouth Rocks fly quite well. The RIRs fly low to the ground. But, they can really run fast! And that makes me laugh as well--watching the chickens run.

Why would they fly when they have a canoe?

Not sure chickens paddle well, Bea. Are they at home in the water?

CW, your chicken stories make me smile! Love the old school names! Keep 'em coming!

I'm beginning to think my 4.5 YO grandson may be developing a liking for cooking! If so, the cooking gene will have skipped a generation.

Whenever he is helping SO or me, he keeps saying "I love doing this!", "I love doing this!". Of course, it may just be he likes to operate power equipment as he was using a hand mixer and a food processor.
