    Let me introduce the (almost grown-up) BP, aka "Black Pearl". BP was one of the babies hatched out of a batch of refrigerated eggs. While still in the incubator, she burned her eye on the heating element. Of course both my husband and I babied her from that point forward. She is one of our forever chickens, and we are happy to say she seems to have made a full recovery. She is a mixed breed. We know the sire is an Easter Egger, and we suspect the mother was an Australorp.

    Today's episode (#1) takes us to BP's first ever jaunt outside of the coop and run...

    ^ BP knows she's all that. Those are just some of her boyfriends hovering in the background. But what's this? The front door is open? Perhaps it's time to get a breath of fresh air!

    ^ BP stares at the strange, cold and slippery ground, searching for anything that looks remotely tasty.

    ^ BP discovers that snow isn't all that bad. Hmmm.

    ^ BP skips merrily along, laughing at the boys who refuse to step foot outside. Tra la la!

    ^ BP decides that the outdoors is good as she stumbles upon a few blades of green grass. SCORE!!




    P.S. Yes, I probably find way too much humor in my chickens. [​IMG]

    Very pretty bird. When we can find pleasure and humor in the simpler things around us we are well on our way in our seach for nirvana.
