Sung to that Sesame Street tune. Just look at that egg, next to its regular-sized compatriots:
We currently have 12 hens and 1 rooster, and they sport interesting names like most of our chickens had. The rooster is named "Average" because we had three roosters, and he was the "average one." Our hens are Dino, Tawny, Nazgul, Styrene, Tethys, Squinch, Popcorn, Grievous, Glaux, Brody, Ferrous, and Pigeon.
Pigeon is one that we'd hatched out in an incubator after a raccoon killed most of our chickens last August. She imprinted on Son1 and acts like a kid, following us around and trying to talk to us. She also jumps up on your arm by gesture-command"
