Introducing my Buckeye hen aka 'The Big Red Hen' enjoying one of her favorite summer treats: cantaloupe. I've had her for over 3 years and she is a wonderful layer. She provides fresh eggs and endless amusement.
She stays in her DelLuxe coop and shed with her partner-in-crime LuLuBell (Easter Egger on right). This picture is from early March (obviously still now on the ground in Madison WI) and I have since given away my cochins (black chicken) since they were always broody and never laid any eggs. Don't worry, they have good homes!
