Dave's profound statement when he viewed the photos that Paula took of Brant and me during their recent visit to the chicken pen: "It is okay to pick chicken up with your fingers."
Here is Brant holding an Ameraucana.
Here is a Production Red prancing up the hill to join us.
This is what she saw - our fearless cat, Mr. Darcy.
Paula and Brant know how to ingratiate themselves with the chickens. They bring leftovers and the great thing about my ladies is that they seldom turn their beaks up at anything that is offered to them. This Ameraucana is enjoying leftover pumpkin bread pudding. As Paula points out in her food blog (http://www.dishingthedivine.com/2009/11/08/its-for-the-birds/), this was not one of her favorite recipes.
