One thing about keeping chickens is that they are always fascinating to watch. Between watching the older girls and the new little chickens, one thing is clear, these girls do not behave like ladies should. Through having a presence on social media, it has become all too clear to me that some women have forgotten to act like ladies. Sometimes, they act like….well… hens. It’s no wonder henpecked is sometimes a word used to describe the way women behave.
I have a loner in the flock. Her name is Fifi. She is a Silkie Bantam at the bottom of the pecking order. She doesn’t seem to be concerned about power or authority. She is curious, happy, timid and shy and keeps to herself. She sleeps alone in the nesting box. She has a few friends-all Silkies who she hangs out with during the day, but most times, she is exploring life alone.
