    She is about a year old and lays white eggs. She has black legs. She is a very pretty bird usually, although she is wet and dirty right now (It's raining right now).

    She also crows like a rooster (lack of one at the moment, although I'm sure we have some in our new chicks).

    Here she is:

    I will go out to the roost and try right now. I think that's where she is at the moment.

    Here is a closer pic. She was outside the coop standing in the pouring rain.[​IMG] She is super drenched now and does not look at all like this normally. I hope this is better. If not, I'll have to try again later when she is dry. Maybe everyone has a preference on angle also. She is very soft and fluffy.[​IMG]

    Yes. I am embarrassed. It is very messy right now. I'm always working in there, and despite having 3 bays, (one is a paint bay though) it is not big enough. I let them in the shop on rainy days, as the coop is about 300 yards or more away and not visible because of the woods between them. I let them in so that they will come over here to eat as we like having them around.

    This will change shortly as I'm going to build a new one close by.
