    My bourbon red turkey hen.

    She almost died the other day due to a red fox attack.

    It was terrible.

    That's not a fair question...I think I can pick a favorite kid before I can pick a favorite bird...Ha!

    This lil girl thinks she's a pet parrot to sit on shoulders, follows you around and talks so sweet...I haven't named her other than Lil Girl...
    and in another flock, Peppermint Patty, she's a smart RIR and quite the character. She'd fly over the chain link fence all summer and greet me in person every morning
    These three need a new pic, the black ones have much more silver on them now and they are currently my youngest (until the silkies hatch this month). These three babies must be a small motorcycle gang w/their leather jackets and attitudes:) While I was insulating their new green coop they would fly out of the chain link fence and march thru their new coop, inspecting even w/power tools, etc., as I wasn't finished as fast as I promised them. They started by peeking into the chicken door and peeping w/a question sound...

    And I haven't even started w/the roosters;)

    Lil' Bit my special needs chicken is hands down my favorite. She doesn't know she's a chicken. If there's any kind of upset in her life whatsoever she comes looking for me to help her. 'Course I'm pretty partial to one of my roos Thor, too.

    It's a tie between my turken, Pot Pie and my BO Audrey. Pot pie is just simply a crack up and she has a pink neck! And big black eyes. Audrey is just precious - fat, friendly, nice to the chicks....

    Who wouldn;t love a pink neck???

    I love all my chick-a-roos, but hands down, my favorite is my Roo, Floppy. When I come home from town, my dogs all run to greet me...and Floppy is right there with them [​IMG]

    Next I'd have to say it's a mixed breed black chicken names Janet Leigh. When we brought her home, she screamed just like in Psycho. We almost changed Floppy's name to Norman. Janet has a sister, and of course her name is Janet Leigh. These two are near the bottom of the pecking order but they can hold their own.

    Next, it's Kung and Pow, they are a Ninja Silkie roo and pullet. No one messes with them. They will unleash wicked kung fu on you.

    After that, they are all my favorites.

    My favourite is my Blue Andalusian hen, Wallflower. She's midway in the pecking order. She's a super-acrobat hen. She likes to sit in her beech tree during the day, and about a week ago at bedtime I discovered her in the goat pen on the opposite side of the house. I'm pretty certain she flew over the house. She'll sit on my shoulder as long as I'll have her and coo in my ear. Of course, sometimes she tugs at the loose hairs around my face, which is not as cute.
