    Silly Ameraucana lap chicken of mine has finally succeeded in convincing me that she is one of my appendages. She loves to be carried around like a purse constantly. If I put her down, she tugs at my pants to pick her back up; sometimes she gets some flesh, too. OUCH. Today, we put the entire flock in when the rain started. I went inside, scooped up the little beggar, checked for eggs, then left the coop and locked the door. Halfway up the hill to the house, I realized that I was still carrying Gypsy, who was happy as a clam. Yep, I guess she has become a permanent attachment. [​IMG]

    The one in the center in this picture is Gypsy. Her mama, Charlotte, is on left and Snow on the right.

    Ok, please tell me that one of your chickens laid that beautiful! [​IMG] vivid blue egg in the nest box?!?!?

    Quote:Ah, yes, the huge bright blue egglayer. That would be the elusive "Plastic Chicken" from the jungles of Taiwan.

    Wow, she does have you well trained.

    All your Ameraucana's are beautiful. I'm looking to get some BBS Ameraucana's this spring.
