    The "LADIES"


    Hi all, welcome to our little backyard flock. We have (5) 2.5 year old Buff Orpington hens, (4) 2 year old Australorps, (2) 2 year old speckled sussex hens and three baby buff orps.

    Three of our original Buff Orpington hens (Crazy Comb, Randy & Baby Bad Wings) from my first flock died.

    They don't call her Mrs. Cuddlesworth for nothing!
    She prefers human company as you can see.

    Here she is relaxing on my belly!

    Ye old coop.
    This coop was built during the great depression and was based on a plan called the great american chicken coop.
    Basically women would cram as many birds as they could in there and those birds would be their source of food and income.
    Today, in 2011, it only holds my 13 hens, and those hens will only ever be kept for eggs and as pets. Times have changed - huh?

    Three of the four Australorps coming out of the coop against the snow, cool photo - huh? Betty is in front and is the sweetest hen ever! She talks constantly. She is also the calmest hen of all to hold, she'll close her eyes (both) and coo softly when I hold her which is quite often.
