This is Jenn - she's mother to the two black and gold girls. Jenn is close to 13 years old. Pure black Astralorpe. She's a slight thing. Weighs around 3 pounds. She's never been a fat girl. (Cat in the background is Emma.) This is Grace - she's under one year. It was her 'sister' Sophie who died suddenly on Christmas Day. Sad and we all miss her but I found you chicken people because of it. Would anyone know what breed she might be? RI of some sort? The ranch store had no idea and there were 3 or 4 kinds of reddish chicks all mixed together. Sophie and Grace are/were dependable egg a day per bird. Grace has been laying daily in spite of losing her sidekick. S & G were very curious, outgoing, playful and fun. They were like that from the moment I brought them home. These are the huge fluff-butts Sweetie and Sadie. Their father was pure Buff Orp. A nice combo BA and BO don't you think? These girls weigh close to 6 pounds. They don't lay much in the winter. They are 5 or 6 years old now. Close up of Sweetie. Close up of Sadie. My name is Donna and I am very glad to be here!
