Harriet and Me

Just thought I'd share a picture of my best girl Harriet. She is fully grown and just a delight to be around! She comes running when I call (I always ask "Where's Harriet") hoping for a treat and when she is getting ready to have an egg, she comes and tells me. If I think it is about time and I am outside, I just pick her up, put her in her box and she has it. I can carry her around like I am holding her in the photo with her legs dangling. When hubby is under the hood of the car I bring her over so she can give her advice and recommendation. She actually looks under the hood like she is checking things out. This was her photo op after giving a consultation. Gotta love her!

Oh my you are too cute with your little chick. People don't always think of chickens as pets. I had a Red Hen that laid one egg every day. She was the only chicken for miles in my neighborhood garden. The children across the street named her Mrs. Cluck and when I moved they so kindly took her in. Hugs, Diane
