This is Albie Mae, short for "Albino Mae West". She is one of our 3 Aracaunas.
We know she is not really an albino, but Ave decided to call her that anyway. I recently added "Mae" to her name, as I felt she was quite sassy, bossy, and crass....like Mae West!
This is one of the 7 Isa Browns. Not sure which, as they look so much alike.
These girls are the opposite of the 3 Aracaunas, which are ever so slightly schitzophrenic.
The Isa's are friendly, inquisitive, and quite frankly, much nicer to be around.
The Aracaunas are more like the "popular clique" from high school.
Unapproachable, stuck on themselves, rather nasty to all the others.
We have had so much rain lately, the grass is doing nothing but growing. And it's been so wet, that no one can mow the lawn. The girls don't care, tho.
Here, they are out for their evening foray into the gardens. I generally let them out around 6pm or so, for a couple of hours of real freedom. I lure them in around 8pm with a pan of kitchen scraps. They come running after me, as only a chicken can!
Here is my "other" girl, Kissy Face. She is around 11 years old.
Still my best mouser.
She sleeps with us every night till around 5am, then she paws me on the shoulder and meows.
That is her sign to me to let her out. She does NOT use the indoor kitty litter box. She must go outside.
It is typically a circus here in the mornings as cats and dog are wanting in and out. Pete has his coffee and bible/prayer time right in front of the slider, so he is the designated "doorman"!
