...And this is QUEEN

Queen is a Golden Comet breed. She is the first of my six hens to lay me an egg. I purchased these six girls in April 2009, when they were about 1 1/2 weeks old, from a local pet and feed store; and have loved and cared for them every since. They are about 6 months old at this writting. I am the only mom that they know. I have realized that because, they were born in incubators, they will never know what it's like to have a real momma chicken mommie. I love these little ladies very much. I, however, do wish that they would be a bit more obedient, and stop ruining my landscape.

She's busy digging for worms below.
