    So this is my child, BabyGrapes 2.0
    Grapes is a hatchery easter egger whom I have come to love. She is also a little **** but that is okay.

    Her name comes from her predecessor Grapes, who passed away last year.

    So when I lost my girl, I decided to claim another Grapes and make her the heir to the grape throne.
    Grapes is a very happy girl who enjoys talking. She lives with the pullets at the shop, but at night she is put inside (since the last grapes was taken out by an owl at night).
    When I first claimed her, I carried her around all day. She wasn't much of a fussy bird either. At the end of the day, I could set her down and walk away to come back to her still sitting in the same spot. Such an obe diet little baby.

    She has a boyfriend named Merlot. (Named after the color of his feathers) who is just as gorgeous.

    They are both blue based, and I'm hoping to hatch some beautiful chicks out of the pair

    Oh my goodness, she's beautiful! (And Merlot is very handsome.) Makes me wish my old EE, who was very much a pet & family member like yours. Also, your art skills are amazing! Seriously, I wish I could draw like that!

    She's a pretty girl, glad you are enjoying each other's company. Merlot is handsome too. Hope you get some beautiful chicks from them!
