    My girls don't need fancy things-just some grass and dirt!




    There was all kinds of gossiping going on

    Are your JG's chatty?

    Mine is SOOOOO chatty. She's quiet until she can see me and then it's just this wonderful conversation. I'm curious if it's the nature of the breed to be so chatty or if she is more chatty because she's my alpha hen.

    Is Stan not allowed in on the gossip session, or does he chose to go to the other side of the pen when the girls are "being girls?"

    Stan now has limited access to the girls to save their backs. Despite having numerous girls, he has his favorites, so he spends his days wandering about with the horse. He goes in a night, though, to keep him safe from the night time predators.

    The girls of the Red Wattle Gang are looking lovely and glossy. It would be a shame to have those pretty back feathers worn thin. I hope Stan enjoys the the horse's company during the day.

    Well, according to Stan, the horse, Dink, is a walking vending machine. It's match made in heaven because the horse is always stirring up bugs or manufacturing..er.....uh oat cookies. [​IMG]
