The Ladies in White


This Sunday morning post is brought to you by the Ladies in White.  



This isn't their favorite time of year, but they do have just a tad bit of green grass in which to forage.  


They receive a lot of feed and veggie scraps, so they are getting fluffier by the day.  



One lady is not so fluffy and is actually missing quite a few feathers.  We feel the, "pecking order", is to blame for this.  

*sigh*


"You know, I remember Career Day in high school. I remember plumbers and lawyers... I don't remember a booth where you could sign up to learn how to shoot chickens out of a cannon at the windshield of an airplane, 'cause there would have been a line at my school to do that!"

  4. Our white ones are taking on a somewhat dirt color lately, it has been so muddy that they are probably enjoying the frozen ground for a change.

  5. Your girls are so pretty and fluffy! My girls love getting out of the run to do a 'walk about' every afternoon, snow or no snow. They have been able to see some green each day.

  8. Oh that Jeff. What a nut. Your chickens are looking lovely! You're so lucky to be able to let them out.. if we did they'd be snatched in no time by a coyote, raccoon or skunk. But my naughty girls haven't laid an egg since August.. tsk tsk. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  9. I love hens. My grannie always kept hens and they used to feed out of my hand as a child. Your hens are really lovely looking

  12. Michelle, how on earth did you find the Jeff Foxworthy quote to accompany today's photos? Good thing I wasn't eating or drinking, or they would have been snorted out of my nostrils.

  17. Cute ladies you have as lodgers on your farm, Michelle!
    Thanks a lot for your latest comment - currently the beach on my favourite island looks totally different because of several strong storms. But my sweethaert and I were favored by fortune and great and calm winter weather during our sojourn there...

  21. So that is where "pecking order" comes from? ... I love it! : - )

  22. Funny quote! Boy do I miss our chickens.

  23. Even though I live in a suburban area, we have neighbors who keep chickens and I love to see them out pecking on the lawn when I go for a walk. When it's really cold at night I see the heater light glowing in their coop.

  24. Sorry one is losing her fluff. It's a tricky time of year for chickens. I love your pictures!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm about to have eggs for dinner :-). I wish they were theirs!

  26. I'm sure they're glad they can be outside. Our chickens really dislike being cooped up in the winter, but they dislike the snow even more. Those are good-looking hens.

  27. Well, how do you do, Ladies in White ? I hope the extra fluff will keep you warm until spring. :)

  29. Your ladies look so plump and beautiful. I love seeing the fluffy back sides of chickens, especially when they run.

  30. My ladies would be thrilled with a nibble of green grass instead of tippy toeing around the snow drifts!
