    Country girl living in the city, my small backyard flock brings me joy everyday. It has become an amazing hobby me and my husband enjoy doing together, with our son. We each play our roll, our creative son is always inventing a new and original chicken coop invention, I have a new idea or wish a day, and my husband just smiles and makes it happen. He is continually building something or searching for what we need. Today, I am going to introduce you to our 'favorite'. We realized one day, our sweet RIR is blind. But that does not stop her from being one of the girls. He favorite thing to do however, is hang with the people. If was are outside she is between our legs. If we are sitting she is napping with us. If we come inside, she stands at the back door looking through the glass into the livingroom waiting for us. That particular habit gains her a great deal of yummy treats and snacks lol.

    She lays an egg about everyday, and all she asks in return is to be one of the people. Our Rhode Island Red is our, BackYard Chicken of the day!

    Red is so darling. I know there are just some special chickens that especially warm the heart.

    I had friendly hen named Red, who was blind in one eye who looked like your Big Red. She also loved water melon.

    For years my husband and I would say...we should get some chickens, but 'chicken' out every time! One day as we grabbed some food for our dog at the feed store, they had the cutest chicks way to close to the check out lol. We did it [​IMG]and Big Red (and a few others) came home with us! That was ooo about 1 1/2 years ago. Best thing we ever did! We have never looked back, and have our eyes set on some favorite breeds we have picked out. But I think the original girls, esp. Big Red, will always be our favorite.
