So I rescued 5 more hens from the chicken prison!
So total, I have rescued 10 hens, yay!
If you didn't read about them last week you can read about them here.
None of them have names yet, except for one you will read about farther down this post..
I didn't want anymore black hens but I also wanted to save as many as I could.
And she is a very big strong hen.
|The guy said she is a Cinnamon Queen? I didn't even know that was a breed!|
I will so bad for this girl. Se has one tail feather, and barely any on her booty. :(

Now on to the best part...
This is Lois Lane, she is 5 years old. Ameraucana. I know that 'cause I got her when she was 2 days old. Then 3 years ago I made the bad decision of trading her for a different chicken. So I just bought her back yesterday! She remembers one of my chickens which I thought was awesome. I have no idea what chickens long term memory is like. But she remembers something.
I am so happy that I decided to get her back. The hen of mine that she remembers was very curious when I brought these new hens home. Then later that night Lois Lane got out of her pen and went up to the barn and they were sitting side by side talking. Is was adorable.
