Ahh, she is a woman now. Remember Uglet, the little featherless chick someone gave us in an In-and-Out bag this past summer? Her only feathers were on her wings and she had these spiky things coming out of her neck that looked like they might some day be feathers. Well she has grown into a chunky banty, all black with glints of green in the sun. Here is it, almost winter and I have not seen hide nor hair of an egg from the regular biddies in over a month. Low and behold:
She cannot sleep with the other hens since she is only a banty and they are full sized battle ships. Or better yet, dinosaurs. So she sleeps in a pet carrier set on the outdoor sideboard. I put straw in it to keep warm and put an old beach towel over it. She seems happy enough.
Well this is a nice early Christmas gift. Thank you Chicky-Doodles, we won’t make fun of you any more. Well, not much anyway.
