This is what the Ratty Four looked like after I sprayed them off and put them in the coop. 4 days ago now. Kinda rough. And I bet the very kind farmers at the Mennonite Fowl Sale ( see Fowl Sale) were gently smirking at my purchases. Cuz what do I know about bird quality???
Here is what they look like NOW. Much better. At least drier looking, anyway. It turns out that the gold-ish one, even though she is the fattest, isn’t in charge. The pecking order starts with the big white one; she is just crabby. Maybe it’s the heat. The two smaller while ones flecked with black just try to stay out of the way of both the bigger hens. I don’t blame them.
Fair Four is a dumb name so don’t expect me to call them this next time. You gotta keep up; the times keep changing.
