Meet the Girls

Meet the girls. I have two Barred Rocks, two Americaunas and one Black Australorp. Betty and Wilma, my two Barred Rocks, have attitude to spare. One of my Americaunas is the beauty queen Margaret- she’s difficult because she can get away with it. The other Americauna is Henny Penny, my son’s favorite. She’s sweet and fairly tame, mostly because my little boy held her so much when she was a chick. Then, we have my sweet Black Australorp Sally. When she’s not broody, she’s sweet and gentle. When she’s broody, stand back- she can get quite nasty.

They come running for the worms after I turn the compost- just makes the eggs that much better . . .
