When we introduced Here's Your One Chance Fancy Don't Let Me Down into our flock, she was the grand dame of chickens and towered over Stella, Lulu2, and Maisy.
A few months of free range living (and daily fresh eggs later), she isn't looking so ... meaty.
We still miss Stella (and have to remind Bella every day that she's not coming home), but these little red girls are pretty cool. Word on the street is we may soon have THREE fresh eggs daily.
New source of income? I can't say for sure ... but someone I know is talking about a new round of chicks in the spring. (And it's not me.)
