Allow me to introduce you to Mrs. Puffington. She's a Buff Orpington, one of my favorite breeds. She's considered a dual purpose bird, meat and eggs. Of course, she shan't ever be meat. Mrs. Puffington is quite lady-like. She's rather quiet, very gentle. If chickens could knit, I'm sure she would be an expert at it. She seems to have the disposition for stitching. I usually have to track her down every night and put her up. She seems to get tangled up in the woodpile for some reason, and has a hard time getting home. Just like me! No sense of direction. When she does go up to roost, she's always kinda hanging half way out of the coop, and I have to poke her plumpness into the coop in order to shut the door. She's accustomed to me picking her up, and almost seems to enjoy it. Her goodness is hard to describe.
Her turn on's are: bugs, leftover rice, and nice dirt piles.
Her turn offs are: mites and raccoons.
