CowNot Hen

This little Ameracauna-Rhodie mix hen lives with Murdock and the CowNots.

A nice hen lives with them.  This hen is not nice.  She's mean as a snake.  We learned the hard way not to take all the girls' eggs, because they'll find a new place to lay, and it'll take us days to find their stash.  So we leave "salt" in the nest: 3 eggs with indelible X's on them.  X = Ucky old egg - Do Not Eat.

Poor Son4.  He has to fight the little spitfire every day for the eggs.  She bites.

For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.  For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.  But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.  ~Galatians 5:13-15
