Here are "my" adopted chickens at the National
Four Plymouth Rocks.
They are molting, in case you can't tell from the plethora of
No eggs for a while.
This most unusual nest is displayed in the Hatchery building at the
Ag Hall. I have never, ever seen another like it. Do you see the roost
in front of each box? All of the things on display in
this building were originally donated by Stromberg's Hatchery.
Sorry for the crooked picture, but there is a display of water founts, as well.
I need to take a better picture.
There is all kind of chicken equipment, many different kinds of brooders, etc.
and for someone who loves chickens like I do, it's fascinating.
I stopped to take a picture of the bluffs again yesterday. Keith told me that
kids have had to be rescued from underneath those rocks!
It's a beautiful place, but scary.
THAT is the south end of a quail. As you see, the beans are just about ready to be harvested, and I was not paying attention and surprised two quail in the road.
This guy was close by, too.
It is just the most beautiful time of year to be out and about!
Oh, and by the way...
THE ROYALS WON!
