Bess

Bess is also an Auracana mix (see info on Dolley below) and she’s very much the baby of the group. She has more personality than the rest of them put together–she loves to fly up to our shoulders or jump waist-high to get a treat out of our hands. She’s the most voracious snail-eater of the bunch and has gotten the others interested in them too, for which we are very grateful. She lays very round little green eggs. I think she was the last to start laying.

This week (and remember, it’s winter) she’s laying an average of 3.5 eggs per week.
