This is a page dedicated to my sweet & funny little RSL, Roxy.
I got Roxanne from my mom's friend and her husband in April 2015, Roxy was their last laying hen, and they wanted to start off with a fresh batch of laying chicks. So after church one Sunday I was asked if I wanted to take the lone hen, or if I didn't they would cull her. I asked my parents if I could take her, and they replied yes. Little did I know what kind of goofy little chicken I had accepted.
One of Roxy's first acts of trouble was when she went missing not long after I got her. I ran around the yard calling her name but she didn't come out, I was worried by then so I asked my parents to help me find her. Finally my mom heard clucking next to an old air compressor tank, and low and behold Roxy was hiding right next to it. As you can see she blended in perfectly with the air compressor.
Another act of trouble was when she stole a piece of banana cream pie from my mom. My mom was sitting outside enjoying a nice summer day and eating a piece of banana cream pie. Roxy was walking around the chair my mom was sitting on, and doing normal chicken things like scratching and pecking. All of a sudden she jumped up onto my mom's lap and spilled her pie on the ground! Then she grabbed a banana off of the spilled pie and ran off! To this day one of Roxy's nicknames is "Pie Chicken".

I know there's more acts of trouble Roxy's committed, but I can't think of them right now. I'll update the article if I think of anymore.
