{almost} Wordless Wednesday – Penny the Hen

This is one of my older hens – Penny, we lost her sister last summer :(. Penny is a red sex link {or Red Star} hen that we got at the local feed mill years ago. She is such a curious chicken, she’s the one who will follow anyone in the family around the yard and hover around the picnic table when we’re having a picnic. She probably has the most photos on the blog since she is always running around after us!

    We used to have chickens when I was growing up. It was interesting to see how they have personalities as well.

    My dad have group of hens and chicks in our backyard. I really love every time my dad is coming towards them carrying their food. I can see my dad surrounded by this big birds. 6 hens or so, and 15 or more chicks. But last 2 days, two of the chicks was just found dead.

    I want chickens but we can’t have them in our community and I’m not sure we could do house chickens. In my next life.

    What a beauty. I’ve convinced my husband we need to get hens again next spring so I’m stoked about it. I’m probably going to be getting Barred Rocks.
