My fat, feathery friend

    Lotus is my 3 year old cornish rock cross hen. She is my best layer (I have gotten 8 eggs in one week from her on several occasions), friendliest chicken I own (she followed me around when she was younger and not as heavy), and the only one that comes when called.

    In the photo above she has just finished a mud-bath and is begging for food.

    Unfortunately, this breed of chicken suffers from leg problems (in Lotus's case, bumblefoot) and other health difficulties due to the quick growth rate. Health problems aside, this breed is my favorite!
