Weezy the Dominique

Weezy (named after Weezy Jefferson) is a beautiful Dominique hen. She is very intelligent and gets easily bored. Sitting on shoulders and pecking at your shiny human eyes are just a couple of her hobbies. Weezy is the queen of the coop with only one chicken that ever gets her goat. When she was 3 days old I started holding her in my hand, close to my face, while talking softly to her. In doing this I hoped to make her nice, tame and easy to handle. It worked...Weezy is very gragarious!!! Weezy lays a medium to large size brown egg. She is an excellent layer, usually laying one egg a day even through her molts.
