One of mine died this morning. Oh well.
That'll teach me to not cull her from the flock at first sign of distress.

the omlette was great. There are pics of my chicks (and their eggs) in today's "what's for dinner" forum.

Oh, I want to see her pick that one up!

I'm new to chickens--but I have to say, the Rhode Island Red hens are so entertaining. We were out digging a spot to put down a concrete base for a "walk in chicken coop" (that would be walk in for humans). Oh my gosh, were the two girls interested in what we were doing. The big cutworm--that probably rivaled a snake as far as they were concerned.

They were in their enclosure, but every time we dug up some earth worms, we offered the worms to them. OMG, do they love earthworms.

There is definitely a dominate girl. When we put them in the barn for the night, I was wearing my dog clogs: Birki's Woodby Dog Blue

The dominant hen was chasing me around the barn and pecking at the "dog" on the right clog. I was busy trying to get water and feed for the barred Plymouth Rock chicks--she was chasing me. She was hilarious. She was also the one that did a piroette when a butterfly flew over her head. They are so funny. When I go out to see them, they come "running" to me. I didn't know chickens moved that fast. My dog clogs are beat up--I'm ordering another pair for "dress up" when I go to MN--and fighting the urge to get the panda ones and the hippo ones...if they had chicken ones, I'd get those. But, for the entertainment factor, I might just start wearing the old dog clogs out to the barn (once I have a "dress up" pair). When I wear my crocs out there that have holes in them, they peck at those, but nothing like the one was chasing me around re: the dog clogs.

I don't plan on eating these two RIRs any time soon. They are too funny. And way too friendly. I'll take the eggs and I haven't told them I ate chicken last night...

Which are you getting? I'm using my "tutoring on line" money to buy more...I think I have enough bucks in my account to get the pandas, the hippos, and another pair of the dogs...too bad they don't have chickens. I'm having mine shipped to MN...or CT when I go down in September...I just have to control myself...I already have 14 pairs of Birkies....

I'm thinking the cats and hipppos...they should be fun at work. Oh, I can't wear them to work, they are heel-less...I'll go visiting off the clock!
