Some mornings are so cold around these parts, that nothing, absolutely nothing, beats a nice warm breakfast of oatmeal with some whole kernel corn and broccoli tossed in for good measure! And theres no better company to share it with than your Oatmeal Buddies! Heres a few pics of my girls sharing said breakfast on an especially chilly morning a few days ago. You can always tell when a chicken is really enjoying her special warm breakfast...... Its written (in oatmeal) all over her face!! That was JuneBug, a 1.5 year old LB. Shes starting a nasty molt right now, so obviously doesnt look her best. In these next three shots, the BO is named FussyButt. A more aptly named chicken there may never be! She fusses all day, every day. BaawkBaawkBaawking about this and BaawkBaawkBaawking about that. That girl is a regular Town Crier! Add into it the fact that she feels it is her personal duty to make sure all of her flock mates have a nice clean face, and yeah, FussyButt is a very apt name for her! Here she is trying her best to clean up Ritas face: Going after another bit of oatmeal on Ritas face again: Clarissa doesnt escape FussyButts attentions either! And who doesnt love a good fluffy butt shot? The big girl on the left (foreground) is Brewenna. Shes about 3 axe handles wide. My biggest butted girl, and a total sweetheart! I think shes a Golden Brahma with a pinch of mutt throw in for good measure.... And since were on the subject of Brewenna, heres a nice side shot of her. Notice how much bigger she is than the other girls. Only the LBs come anywhere near her for size and even they look wimpy next to her. Also, since were still on the subject of Brewenna, as well as big fluffy butts, heres a shot of Brew with FussyButt. Im not sure, but I think poor Brew was about to be another one of Fussys face cleaning victims! This here is Rita, one of my more favorite girls. Just a sweetie pie and always happy to see me. This was taken just before FussyButt managed to clean her face! So, there ya have it....breakfast with the Oatmeal Buddies .....hope yall enjoyed this little visit.
