Villa Petra: Home for Orphan Hens!

Human has done it again! She has adopted yet another hen. The new one, Carmen, is a Blue Andalusian. She and Brigid were nest mates, part of a 4-H project that out grew its space. After just a few days Carmen has learned that Human is the provider of all things tasty, well at least those we don't have to find ourselves. She has discovered that bananas are ok to eat but does not care for cabbage.

Last night Carmen went into the coop first and grabbed MY favorite part of the perch! The nerve of her, I mean really, she is at the bottom of the pecking order after all!

Carmen, Blue Andalusian
Carmen sits in the pine tree so the rest of us won't chase her!
