    As a newbie I have been really surprised by the variation in characters of my six hens. Of all of them, the little ISO brown is the standout. She lays every day come rain or shine, sometimes massive eggs, and follows me around like a dog. If I work in the basement she hops on up the workbench and wont hop down if I use power tools. Yesterday I was in my office on the main floor when I felt someone looking at me. She had flown up onto the barbecue and was staring at me through the window. Ain't love grand? :)

    Yes, it is very fun watching every bird with it's own personality. Sounds like shes a real sweetie, does she have a name? It sure is!

    Hi Golden: Yes. Her name is Colleen. There's some fierce intelligence there for such a little brain. I have a big soft spot for her.

    Mind you, they are all friendly. This is Annie. She won't let me read a book.
