As any parent would tell you, they have a favorite child that they always keep closer to their heart than the others. My favorite chicken child is Phoebe. Phoebe is a Buff Orpington. She celebrated her 2nd birthday on July 19th. She's a very gentle, loving, curious and well behaved girl. She lays very large light brown eggs. Phoebe is always the first to see me coming out with a yummy treat. Usually, she will jump in front of her pen mate Scroungey to steal her treats. Since Scroungey is the Boss hen it's a brave thing for Phoebe to do. Sometimes Scroungey will give her a good swift peck on the comb if Phoebe gets to brazen.
