Do U feel like a "spring chicken" ?

I cried because I had no shoes. Then I met a man who had no feet

And how is that flock ?

I heard the robin singing several evenings ago - first time this year.
The girls are starting to lay better now that the days are getting longer.
Since they are all a year older, they are laying larger eggs, but they will lay less of them per bird - usually about 10% less eggs per bird for each year older.

I have one leghorn, Molly - and they tend to be flighty birds - that immediately upon arriving here a few years ago, decided that her day is not complete unless I pick her up and cuddle for a while. She is the one that decided I would do that. I don't usually pick up my girls.

But, and this is unusual, when one picks up a chicken, you have to bring your hands up from below because coming from above, they have an instinctive fear response. From flinching to running.

Molly however has no fear in her at all. I can bring my hands down from above, even in an aggressive way, and she calmly waits to be picked up.

I have never seen a bird so calm and wanting to be held as her.

Sometimes I can't get out there for several days (due to pain), but when she hasn't seen me for say, 3 days, she wants to be picked up 3 times. She goes out in between, but she makes up for the missed days by coming back in again and again.

She's better at math than I am.

I don't have a photo of her that is close up, but she looks like this


The only difference is that my Molly is the filthiest gal I have. She is always getting into muck so when I pick her up, I almost need to be hosed off. But I love her.
