Huff and Puff
My husband has always wanted what he calls "Poof Heads" but what are really Crested Top Hats or Polish chickens. I finally got two chicks from Houle's Farm Store in Stillwater and surprised him for his birthday. So imagine our surprise when a crow came along and took Puff. I had no idea that a crow would/could do that. My daughter was upset because she saw it happen. Poor Puff was only 5 or 6 weeks old. At first, Huff was hiding and afraid. She would peek around the corner with - I swear - a confused and concerned expression. Who wouldn't? But she soon started to hang with Peach Freeze and Coconut.
So between Coco, Legs and Puff, we are down three chickens this spring.
