Presenting Miss Eleanor, the sweetheart.

Presenting Miss Eleanor, the sweetheart. They say Rhode Island Reds are pretty docile birds, and I guess they’re right. She’s very friendly and kind to the other birds, and she’s getting active, too: she loves to run laps around the brooder with her wings flapping. Both she and Abigail are working on their roosting skills–hens usually sleep on a roost, but you have to start them out on a little training perch so they can get used to the concept. Eleanor fell asleep perched on Scott’s finger today. Posted by Hello
