    Here is Lucy. She is the most curious RIR. I was digging some holes out in the field for blackberries, and next thing I know here she is. Of course, she knows if I have the shovel, it means WORMS, lol.

    I went to take a break and sit down on the porch, and here she is again, looking at me. I just thought I would share.

    She's the project supervisor, you know. They all have to oversee everything we do, just in case there's something good in it for them! I have a Lucy, too, though mine is a NH. Nice close up pics of your girl!
  3. I love RIR hens. They get so big and curious. They always seem to have something to say and I have yet to have one not allow me to pick them up.

    Yep, I am so afraid that I will hurt one of them. Once I was digging and I looked up and there were several chickens looking down in the hole, lol.

    They do love those worms.

    She was just wondering why the shovel lady had to take a break while they were still hungry. [​IMG]
