Hold onto your heart! This week’s photo shows all six of my chickens enjoying ears of fresh summer corn. This is one of the advantages of living in a city with so many farms nearby.
Hard to imagine these big beautiful girls being afraid of anything isn’t it?! But, as I shared earlier, they can. The only thing they have to be afraid of with this photo is how it may not show everyone’s “best side.” (Yes, I did use Photoshop. But don’t all celebrities have their photos Photoshopped?)
Who is who? BACK ROW (Left To Right) Gracie (Buff Orpington), Pearl (White Rock), and Amelia (Barred Rock) FRONT ROW (Left To Right) Bessie (Buff Orpington), Blanche (White Rock), and Emily (Gold Laced Wyandotte). You can read more about all of my chickens on this page.
The White Rock Girls have the biggest appetites, particularly Blanche who also lays the biggest eggs. I give away eggs every week in six-egg cartons, and always try to include at least one Blanche “Super Jumbo” even though it makes the carton not so easy to close!
Emily is my Little Lady. She is always so prim and proper and takes only small lady-like bites. She hardly ever needs to wipe her beak after eating, even with juicy fresh summer corn!
I will do my best to post each Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Every “Like,” “Follow,” and “Comment” is truly appreciated!
