The last two birds in my flock are my Americaunas.
These two beautiful birds came to me as chicks. I had a broody hen & rather then “break her,” I put her in the Eglu by herself, let her sit on some eggs and after a couple weeks (under the cover of darkness) switched the eggs for chicks! It worked like a charm and took all the work out of raising chicks!
Lenore is my husband’s favorite. She loves people, being pet, held and loved on. She also has rediculusly cute cheeks:
Annabel Lee, on the other hand, has very naked cheeks:
And her cheeks are the same color as her eggs, which I once heard someone say about chickens in passing, that their cheeks match their eggs.
I wonder if it’s true…
