Ida Mae

For those who follow this blog primarily for stories about my chickens, here's a photo of Ida Mae, the larger and more cocky (har har) of the two new black australorpes. You can't really see it here, but they're very pretty, with super soft feathers and a nice green sheen over the black. I had to get her picture inside the coop, because she and Pauline are not yet venturing through the door to the outside world. Maybe Clara is filling their pea-sized heads with scary stories about What Happened to the Other Chickens.

"Pea-sized?" You're being generous.
