    Here are some pictures of my hens. Could anyone tell me what breed the yellow/buttercup one is please? I am pretty sure two of them are Rhode Island Reds (named Angel and Ruby) and the other is a Dominique (named Crenn, for Dominique Crenn, the chef). The buttercup one is aptly named Marigold. Marigold and Crenn are the most docile ones- they let us pet them and hold them. The RIR are typically more interested in the treats we bring.
    Here are the four girls, pecking away at an apple on a dowel rod. :)[​IMG]

    Also, we are wanting to do some kind of auto-waterer that does not involve connecting to a hose (thinking PVC pipe of some sort). Does anyone have any systems that are successful? I've been looking at buying these cups from Amazon but still are trying to figure out the best way to implement them. Thank you for your suggestions! :)

    Marigold looks like a mixed breed.
