    I have complete faith in the confidentiality of BYC and the Internet, that she never will.

    Roger led his hens out of the coop and run today. Brought them out and settled on my front porch mat. Of course they got some BOSS. They seemed to be more confident in the snow today than I thought they would be.

    Today also we had 8 Easterns visit.

    I performed "ethnic Cleansing" in the creamette coop today. The two non creamettes have been moved to the other coop. I was a little disappointed in the BA. It seemed light and small to me. I know it is my youngest bird, But I thought it would be bigger.

    I figured beings everyone is on lock down for 2 weeks until I get back it is a good time to move chickens, so they have lots of time to get use to their new coops.


    The BA is also a cry baby, she screamed and cried the whole trip to the layers coop. She will be happier there, she just does not know it yet. The Easter egger was perfectly happy to have me carry it, I only got bit once by it.

    I am thinking the half Creamette, Half Easter Egger, night be Half Creamer, half Easter Egger. Her tail is looking a little unruly for a hen. Another disappointing development.

    OK, please tell me what a creamette is.



    I gave in and bought eggs yesterday. Luckily, I found a guy about a mile from me that sells eggs. $2.50 a dozen. So, even though most of my girls are free loading, I don't have to eat store bought eggs.

    I brought in my sickly molting white chicken for a chicken feed omlet. She is in the same boat as Fi. I am petitioning to start a sister page to BYC - Kitchen Table Chickens ;)
