These 2 chicks roam our streets often....they belong to a neighbor that lives 3 doors away.
They are sisters: Frank 'n Stein (I don't know which is which)
During Thanksgiving week, we saw only 1 roaming around. She looked so lonely. We assumed a raccoon got to the other one.
I convinced our neighbor to let me bring her into our flock (?) of chickens.
I made a partition in the coop to ease her into the group or else they would peck her to death. So far, she is adjusting really well....and the other 3 chickens seemed to leave her alone. We don't know if she is "Frank" or "Stein", but we renamed her "FRANKIE".
Here comes the special part of my story....
Last Thanksgiving, one of my neighbors watched our chickens while we were out of town. My favorite one (Ruby) died because the neighbor forgot to lock her in the coop at night. She was our special chicken because she was the only one that laid blue eggs!
This Thanksgiving, Frankie left us a blue egg.
