After several unsuccessful attempts, we finally managed to get our rooster Little Bit returned to the farmer and exchanged for a hen. We picked a lovely Ameraucana, gold with brown and black markings. One of my friends from work, Ron, asked us to name her after him. One of Chris’s friends from work, Ellen, made the same odd request. We ended up with Rawnell.
Isn’t she pretty?
She’s still bottom of the pecking order, but she’s doing all right. I’m pretty sure she’s given us one egg, although it’s hard to tell with having three Ameraucanas.
