these chickens of mine go gah gah over watermelon. the araucana rooster (white) is here with his buff orpington posse. he hangs with these girls instead of the araucana hens. it's kind of funny. they have formed their little social groups. apparently the orpington ladiez dig *MA*.
also i don't think i've told you that one of the araucana girls has a wicked crooked beak. it's gotten worse as she's matured. so i'm worried about her. i'm sure it makes eating and drinking difficult and i know it can lead to starvation. but she's not any smaller than her sisters so i'm just keeping an eye on her for now and hoping she's adapting and managing. poor biddie.
finally, i'm going out for the day today. i'm visiting a place called "quaker city" and i'm really super excited. i'll tell you about it when i get back and i'm bringing my camera with me.
and now i'm going to go eat some steel cut oatmeal with blueberries and syrup. i went b.b picking again the other day and my freezer is filling up with free berries! go me.
oh, p.s. one more thing. check out this place. i die i die i die. that's all.
