    My rooster wandered off to my neighbor's barn & young hen. We'd had a coon attack Two weeks ago Sunday morning. One hen died, and my BA hen has shunned roo's attention since.
    [​IMG] My neighbor asked us to come & get our roo, since he's scared of roosters. " And take thae hen with him. I don't want any chickens in my barn." The hen must be a bantam Aracana, she's white with red - blushed head, chest & wings. She's a noisy layer! lays blue eggs, medium size.[​IMG] The farmer's wife said her husband was afraid of the blue colored eggs, wouldn't even taste one. He fed those eggs to his dogs. [​IMG] YAY! I got a free hen. just for walking next door to help my neighbor from a "big scary rooster".LOL! My rooster is a big old scardy-cat![​IMG]

    Nice deal! Your new hen sounds cute (I'd love to see a picture of her!), and gotta love those blue eggs! Funny how people get about the color of eggs... [​IMG]
