    Just kidding - Snow White was preening and I caught her in the act. HAHA! But I am happy to report she has laid 3 eggs in a row - all hard shelled! I think her softshell egg days may be a thing of the past. I changed her to Layena & gave her oyster shell on the side. Those changes and the added light & Alfalfa seem to have helped her along.

    HAHA! Here she is with her head - and her bluekote on the comb. Good old Foghorn ripped it open while doing the deed one day last week.

    Yeah - I would have been worried about the reality of it and freaked if I opened this up and saw a real headless chicken. HAHA! I took a bunch of shots while I was outside with my iphone and then when I uploaded the pictures to my computer I was looking at them and was shocked to see my headless chicken - so I thought someone else might get a laugh over it too!

    Whew, what a relief! I expected major gore, and got a cute white fluff ball instead. [​IMG]
