Here's a picture of my granddaughter with her favorite...Lily, who is an australorp. These two started me on the whole chicken adventure. Lily is now seven mo. old and still hasn't laid a single egg. But we love her the best. Who'd of thought I'd enjoy chickens so much.My husband agrees with me, my brother thinks we're nuts and the rest of the family enjoys the fresh eggs from my flock of 4 (well three so far). The rir, nhr, and leghorn are daily layers. Gemma and I are so proud.
