The chicken girl-gang in my backyard. All of them have names, they do indeed have different personalities and they’re living their best lives in their little universe, doing their fun and exciting chicken things all day long.
So here’s an image-collection of my big, beautiful, bulky and brave still-a-kitten Lady of the House “Gattina”. A german slang word for a cute small kitten is “Maunzele” (“Meower”) and that’s what I still call her – and “Gattina” is Italian for “Kitten” – that says it all, although she’s really more of a “Big Mama” by now… 🙂
Now that a year and a half have passed, I have learned geometrically and gained a lot of experience tending to my brave and pretty chickens. So here are my updated notes on chicken care and feeding. Maybe someone will find this useful, since they’re solely born from experience and, well, trial and error – but that makes these notes all the more “original” and reliable for me.
Pretty, protective, full-throated and enraged Henriette, when we tried to collect her own freshly laid egg 🙂 (She got over it and she’s very well used to us rummaging around in the den).
