My life is surrounded with winged creatures. I love them so! I have so many beautiful hens, my girls, or THE girls I call them. I realize that phrase means something else to some people, but here on Kingfisher Farm I am referring to breasts covered with feathers! I was sick recently and could not keep up with the hens output! I usually donate unsold eggs to the local food pantry, and they greet them with a smile. This week though, the coyotes will get the eggs. I simply couldn't wash and refridgerate them all.

My gathering basket sitting inside the back door.

Here they sit on top of my husband's great grandmother's ball and stick oak table.

Love those free-range eggs! they look so homey in that basket set on the old table. I had a pet chicken as a kid, she laid an egg every day.. she was such a kind and gentle creature ;) give us some pics of your Lucy hen!

Oh I love your Lucy Hen...i hope those coyotes don't go near the hens... i am so terrified of those nasty beasts... i need chickens here to eat up all the ticks so we don't get bit! Hope all is well with you Pam! Miss chatting!
