We have a hen in the house! I finally picked her up about an hour ago. It was like pulling teeth to get answers from the gal I got her from. She lives barely a mile away. I had hoped to pick her up this morning. Oh, well. She is here! She is very friendly, too. She's about 1.5 years old. She is a Rhode Island Red, or a cross of that breed.

|Nikky is obsessing, of course. Whining and carrying on about the new 'baby'.|
|She was checking out the bunnies in the house while I was setting her food and water out on the deck.|
|The cage is temporary, until I get the rest of the coop (it's sitting in) painted, tiled and the front put on it. I need to get the wheels on it, too, as it is damn heavy to move.|
|She's already discovered the hanging bell toy.|
|I trimmed the feathers on one wing, so she can't fly over the rail and off the deck.|
I have another possible bunny buyer coming tomorrow. She's interested in the blue buck. :) Hope she gets him. The money will buy a big bag of organic chicken layer feed at Costco for the hen! I just bought a couple of little bags of treats at Tractor Supply on the way home with her and also giving her some of the doves' feed. Luckily, I have plenty of hay, due to the rabbits! So, it will all work out.
I made this today: Raspberry Cheesecake Fat Blasters Recipe OMG! Yum! And, soooo easy to make.
Well, my mom wants to name the hen Rachel ... :/
