It was right around this time last year when our three Ameraucana chickens, Fanny, Henrietta, and Wilmadene got the chase of their lives. We still don’t know the culprit, but the 3 suspects are a fox, the neighbor’s dog, or the chicken hawks. It doesn’t matter, because they’re gone.
They were funny and each had a very distinct personality. Henrietta was bossy and snobby, Fanny was non-confrontational and timid, and Wilmadene whined constantly and I’m pretty sure she had severe anxiety. It was fun to watch them dances around the yard chasing bugs.
We will hopefully be getting 6 more chickens in the spring after I’ve finished construction on a maximum security facility to house them. I think I’ll get Dominiques this time around. G-Money remembers the chickens last year, but she’ll really enjoy them as a 3-yr-old next year! Any chicken advice is welcomed!
Rest in peace, chickies!
