Home is where the hens are
Yikes is good at capturing your heart. She knows how to act very silly.
So yesterday we got back from our trip.
First I would like to tell you about some of the great birds we saw: At a feed store in California we got to see Naked Neck Turkens, buff Silkies, gamecock chickens and some very cute chicks (also rabbits, guinea pigs, various rodents and quite a few ornamental pet birds).
In Washington we saw a beautiful swan, a few geese of unidentified breed, ducks (Mallard?), a little Red Jungle Fowl cock, silver laced Wyandottes, Australorps...The list goes on and on.
Yes, we got to see family and friends too but this is a chicken blog, remember?
We were happy to find that all of our 11 remaining hens are still alive.
