So I'm visiting this very neglected blog. No pincushions to show so here are our pet chickens. Originally belonging to my daughter, we took them on when she moved out as she was going in to an apartment. They are named Honey (the blond), Gretchen (the white) and Henley (the dark brown). Generally at least one of them are laying so we get one egg a day, but they are pets so we don't worry too much about that. They free range our back yard during the day and then put themselves to bed at dusk. Too cute.
