A Blog by Chicken Wrangler Sara
Not all of our chickens have names. Lili, however, is special. She is the only D’Uccle, or dusseldorfer as I call her, in the flock. I must confess, she is my favorite.
She is much smaller than the other chickens and has wonderful long feathers on her feet.
Lately she has taken to hanging out on the roost in the coop in the mornings. She runs back and forth as though she is afraid to get down.
So I gently pick her up and set her on the ground. Actually I give her a little hug first.
I’m not sure how she feels about this but these morning snuggles get my day off to a nice start.
Especially now that I have no children left at home.
