Chicken Spotlight: Dragon

DSC05215

Dragon is a Russian Orloff hen.  She is extremely tame, and likes to eat cheese.  She is high up in the pecking order, and is in charge of the younger birds.  After her last molt, her feathers came in lighter, and her color pattern is beautiful.

Chicks Year After Year

This year’s batch of chicks is larger than most: five.  Usually, to keep the coop from getting too crowded, we usually get two or three.  We do not eat our chickens, so we count on them living a long time.  Below are chicks from the past few years.  You can see how much they grow in just a short time!
