    I went to the auction today. I was supposed to be looking for a new feeder. I didn't find a feeder, so I got 2 chickens insted. DH should know better than to not go with me. DDIL bought a bunny. I got a Buff Cochin and a big fat muffed something or other. I'm thinking she is some sort of EE or a cross. She does have green legs. She seems to be a bit of a more mature girl. It looks like nobody has cut her toe nails in a while. The Cochin is now named Buttercup. I was going to name the other Lois, But I think I might call her Muffy instead. What do you guys think would be better?

    If you paint those chickens nails red or pink, you sure won't have to trim them again the other chickens will take them nails right off at the polish LOL

    Jody you where a good girl when ? LOL
