At last, I finally got all my pictures out of the camera and on line. There were vacation pictures in there--wow! Maybe I should download it more often! Anyway, these are some pictures of our pet hen, Brigid the Wonder Chicken. They told us she was an RI Red, but this hen does NOT look like the ohter ones we got who are ALSO supposed to be RIR's. Any idea what she is? She is really small, about half the size of our RI/Leghorn girls we got from the egg farm, and about 1/3 the size of the new reds. What? Doesn't everyone have a chicken under the Christmas tree? . . . .Nurse Brigid with her patient Connor after he got beat up . . What do you do with old feed sacks? Make chicken-printed wrapping paper, of course! . . Story time is always a big draw at our house! . . . Most Christmas trees ahve an angel or a star or something . . . . . . . ARRGH! Methinks my Parrot has flown the coop! . . . A pouting chicken in Chicken Jail! (She is in the puppy pen after she ran way repeatedly and stayed out all night. After she was out for 2 nights straight, we decided she could not be left alone unsupervised. This is the best thing we could come up with!) .
