A few pictures of them this morning. You can see Duchess’s modified saddle in a few of them. Seems to be keeping her safe, but they sure can’t figure out how to breed her. I happened to pop on Craigslist and there someone selling two year old pairs and trios of Lavender Orpingtons for $35 and $50. *sigh* I’m soooo broke this month and they are only about twenty minutes from me. *sigh again* The mowers killed one copperhead yesterday in the yard, which was utterly horrifying. I saw a rat snake about fifteen minutes after that maybe. But those were the only two snakes to make an appearance. I’m hoping with the yard nice and short that won’t be a problem any more. I gave the girls back their nest boxes so we’ll see if there are any eggs when I get home.
