Isn’t She Lovely?

Edna is a stan­dard white crested blue. I con­sider her one of my glamor chick­ens.  She’s a bit high-strung and tends to be flighty. I can’t help but won­der if some of it has to do with her hair in her eyes.

She is also a bit sneaky. When I go to open the coop door in the morn­ing, Edna almost invari­ably tries to sneak past me for her own pri­vate walk­a­bout in the gar­den. Often she suc­ceeds, but then almost imme­di­ately regrets her actions since she’s sep­a­rated from her friends.

Edna should start lay­ing in about another month.
