Everyone from the neighbor to the pastor, from my colleagues to my mother is asking me this lately.
"They're big, and they are turning into pullets."
Pullet is the chicken name for teenager and, while I'm not exactly sure when chicks are considered pullets, my birds are no longer cute and not yet productive. So, yes, I think I have pullets.
And they have names!
This is Black Star, the friendliest of the bunch. She's a Barred Rock.
|She's bigger than the neighbor's house!|
Here is Sarah, Plain and Tall, another Barred Rock
This is Madeye, a Salmon Faverolle.
Here is Pippi Longstocking, another Salmon Faverolle.
You might have picked up a theme with the names. Yes, they are all children's book characters, suggested by various members of the family. Can anyone name all 5 books that they come from? Leave your answer in the comments below, and we will be impressed!
