This weekend I got to chicken-sit my friend’s chickens and B got to bond with our new feathered friends. We fed them cracker treats and cantaloupe chunks.
This red one is named Red. She’s the only one that will allow you to pick her up and loves it when you pet her comb. The one on the far right I refer to as Mutton-Chops, for the same obvious reason that Red is red.
This one I simply refer to as Butt Head. Because she’s a butt head.
All of them will chase you around when they think you have food and enjoy being sprayed with a hose. They lay big brown and little white eggs and can strip a grasshopper to bits in no time. I can’t wait until we have our own chickens to terrorize the local grasshopper population.
