Chicken Update


Click here to watch this video on YouTube

The latest pair of chickens that Bo gave to his mom were a Feather footed hen and rooster known as Frizzle chicken.

They are still very young, the female looks like a chicken peep when she walks.

A Frizzle is a type of chicken with feathers that curl outwards, rather than laying flat as in most chickens.  As a result of its unusual look, Frizzles are primarily exhibition birds.  Source.

She looks so cute, and fun to watch.  As you can see it’s not hard to get her in a pan at all.

The rooster is not that big.

The Australorp is a chicken breed of Australian origin, and this Red Star Australorp hen is still very young.  Grandma has about 70 laying hens and roosters that keep her busy all year round.

All photos and video were shot with a Canon T2i and EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens.

  1. These are some of the fanciest chickens in town! And Bo just keeps bringing Grandma more of them. 🙂

    Our pet chicken of 7 years passed away this summer. I never thought I would become attach to a chicken. She had a great personality and kept the bugs out of mom’s garden.


    Our pet chicken was a Plymouth Rock just like this photo from Keeping Chickens.

    • Cn, sorry to hear about your pet chicken, the Plymouth Rock is one of the breeds that Bo has not gotten for his mom yet. I think seeing the different breeds makes raising chicken more interesting and they are so funny especially during feeding time. Grandma said that they’ll run over each other, and some that are far away would fly to get there faster. I guess you could really get attached to them. It sounds like you need to get another pet chicken. 🙂
