Runt of the Coop -
Though this sweet heart mamma is the second oldest in the coop, she is the second smallest for my standard sized Hens. (If you dont include my baby EE and Speckled Sussex) Every day she lays an lovely sized light brown egg, and seems to love being pet. Her favorite scratchy place place is on the back of the head, and she nearly purrs for it. He name is Go-Pro. Its a long story
Chicken Nugget -
This handsome boy is Nugget. *whips off glasses* Chicken Nugget. He is my favorite chicken of all time, though he no longer resides in my coop. (He lives with a nice man who goes by the name of Patrick, and owns plenty of hens for Nugget) He was such a sweetheart, always hopping into my lap, and chirruping at me until I rubbed his wattles or pet him from head to tail feather. I miss the little dude, though i'm sure he loves his free range home in the desert.
Chatter Box -
This is Big Momma Bird! Or Pollito for short. This saucy wench rules the coop with an iron feather, and although she is my hardest worker to bring the biggest eggs she can to the egg box, she doesn't mind taking a day off. (And disappointing me once a week, might I add) She is the most perfect Barred Rock in the world, and loves Pomegranate seeds.
This cute little Barred rock is Finn (Though she is full grown now) A sassy lass with an eye for invasive pest things, she is my ideal bug killing machine. Well, ant, and lizard, and flies and spiders and she even got mouse once. Don't know how she managed to do it! (She didn't eat it of course, but she mutilated it pretty good.)
Quinn, the Twin sister to Finn, (I dont know if they are actually identical twins, or even related, but they look exactly the same despite some leg freckles) Now a full grown beautiful Barred Rock, she helps to maintain the pecking order right under the wing of Pollito.
Broody Jerk -
This is Reba, the broody jerk. And I do mean that in the most loving way possible. Reba is a beautiful gold laced Wyandotte, who has a knack for sitting on infertile eggs and annoying the crap out of me. (Iv'e had to isolate her from the rest of the coop 4 times) I love this bird, but I swear she is the reason for my grey hairs (Which at 17 is a big deal XD) She is practically the youngest, and has the most beautiful eyes I have ever seen on a chicken. She hates my guts. I'll go to check for eggs under her, and she'll scream bloody murder at me, and puff up to the size of a good throw pillow, attempting to tear my finger from its socket. (A scratch behind the comb calms that right down into a content purring sound)
Dirty Little Bird! -
This little ball of fluff is my bantam non-bearded silkie, Yukon. Or should I say dirty que tip -_- I think she enjoys dust bathing more for the sake of making me beat my head against a wall in angst more than the prevention of bugs... But I do love her, and she is my favorite. (What am I saying? They are all my favorite!) She is the only bird in the coop with chocolate brown eyes, and her ability to just sit and be pet is amazing to anyone who meets her. "How the heck does that chicken not fly off or peck you?!" They ask in confusion and amazement at the white fluff ball purring contently in my lap. To this I usually reply in a whisper "She thinks shes a cat, and you had better start believing it yourselves if you want to hold her!"
