We just love our chickens, but especially Penny. She is so sweet. From the very beginning she was clumsy and akward. When she was just learning to roost, all of the other chicks would move to the other end of the tub when she would try and go up or down, because she was so clumsy. Now, when the other chickens flap their wings and zoom across the yard, Penny only hops and seems to forget to flap her wings fast enough to help herself get off the ground :-) It is quite a sight---- I need to try to video tape her doing this! My nephew says she looks like a chicken on a pogo stick, lol !!
I have noticed that she is the smallest of my chickens. She also has been the last chicken to get fully feathered out. I just want to be sure that you all think that she is really a SHE :-) She will be 8 weeks old Sunday and is a Partridge Plymouth Rock (I believe).

Thank you! :-)
