    At 10 weeks old she loved to get her weekly bath. She had the ability to get dirty fast. One time she had so much mud on her feet she could not walk and tried to hop-kodak moment for sure. Key word is 'tried'.

    She has a ting of yellow in her; in artificial light it looks slightly orange. That was the main reason we kept her instead of eating her. Plus she loves to take mud baths with the ducks (so funny). I think it kind of stained her feathers.

    P.S. My wife calls her Mud Hen.

    She is beautiful. [​IMG] I am glad I am not the only one who insist on given their chickens baths and blow drying them afterward. [​IMG]
