giant chick and bantams
The giant chicken, when seen with the bantams this chick looks like a giant and when you realize she probably isn't over 3 months old she really looks large. She must be a mix breed barn yard fowl.She has green legs and some resemblance to a game chicken in looks and attitude. she is very flighty. My guineas go down across my neighbors yard and spend a lot of time in his yard. I am still feeding them but I should be able to stop soon and they can get their food from insects. The guinea hens are laying. the neighbor told Sammy that one hen was laying near their house. I wonder if they took the eggs to eat? probably not, they are citified and wouldn't know they taste just like chicken eggs. I woke this morning and realized I didn't have any pain in my leg. It felt so good to lay there and not hurt but that all changed when I went to feed my left leg was hurting as I made my way back to the house. My tomato plants didn't get frosted last night. I thought they might but the wind blew most of the night and it didn't get cold enough.
