Introducing

 

Introducing our 2 red hens.  The one at the front is Big Red.  Oh she is a handful.  Forever escaping, digging up the gardens and generally being a pain.  She loves to visit the neighbours and has often been seen chasing large birds out of the yard.  She is also the best layer with big duck size eggs that are usually double yolks and will happily let the boys cart her around the yard. 

The hen at the back is Little Red or little chook.  She is timid and dislikes the boys.  She is quick, flighty and the bottom of the flock.  She is a regular layer.  So unlike her sister.

They are both Rhode Island Reds and roughly 6 to 7 months old.
