    Thank you all for the nice comments. Brandy is a mixed hen. My husband found her in a local park where he walks most mornings. He had noticed her there for 2 months and wondered how she got there and how she survived. No homes or highways are nearby the park. Anyway, one Saturday he took our cat carrier and some wild bird seed with him and easily caught her. She is very tame. We've had her a couple of months. She wasn't laying when we got her. Now she lays 5 or 6 cream colored eggs a week for us. When it's really cold, the shells have what I call chill bumps on them! [​IMG] You can see her jumping up into my husband's lap to eat Honey Nut Cheerios right out of his hand on Just search Brandy loves Cheerios. She is very special to us. I won a bid on for Pocket and Penny. I have only had them for 10 days. The man who auctioned them also sent a freebie, Dahlia. Poor Pocket is suddenly missing some feathers around his neck. There are only stubs remaining. I have him in an isolation pen because Penny was pecking at the feather stubbs to the point of drawing blood. I've been giving him antibiotic injections for the past 4 days. Three more to go. Do any of you have any idea how long it takes feathers to regrow? I'm afraid to take him out of the pen for fear Penny will reinfect the area trying to pull the little quill stubs out!

    If you ever decide to get rid of Brandy, just let me know.

    She has beautiful colors and marking.
    She looks to be Old English Game.

    The others are awesome too, but Brandy is just exceptional.
