Chickens! By Chris & Frances

Chickens! By Chris & Frances

We have four Ameraucana hens in our backyard. Their names are Five Toe, Cluck, Turkey and Lula, and they are almost 4 years old. They love to eat bugs everyday, as well as the gourmet food and scraps we provide them; in return, they give us 3-4 eggs a day, unless it’s winter or during their moulting season in late summer.

Five Toe is the alpha female of the group; she is the most aggressive of the bunch, and can be somewhat vicious to the other chickens but not with kids!

They’ve had many adventures with Frances over the years:

We love our chickens!
