Let me just preface this post by saying that chickens are hard to photograph! Period.
This is Mother Plumtree. She is another Buff Orpington. I have two. Looks just like Mrs. Puffington, no? Well, almost. When you see them next to each other, Mother Plumtree is much lighter.
Another gentle bird. Mother Plumtree lives in the shadow of Mrs. Puffington. She knits as well, but drops a lot of stitches and gets frustrated easily. She can embroider beautifully. She's a bit shy.
Her turn on's: Tomato worms, the shady spot under the daylilies and cantaloupe rinds.
Her turn off's: Loud noises, the neighbor's dog and people that knit well.
I'll give you a break tomorrow with the birds and talk about something completely different!
I have six more hens to go.................
