The Funky Chicken

So, I was at my sister, Lisa's house the other day, after the Portuguese & Spanish wine event that we went to and guess who I found pecking around my car?  Yep, Rosa, the Funky Chicken.  Or, at least that's what I call her. 

Rosa is one of Lisa's three resident chickens along with one big, mean rooster.  The three chickens are totally friendly.  Stripey, the rooster has become VERY aggressive.  Not sure if Stripey will stay around for much longer.


As you can see, Rosa was totally at home in my car.


Very curious, just checking things out.


Lisa has quite the 'petting zoo' going on at her home.  Remember the baby bunnies from a few months ago?  Well, they're quite a bit bigger now and SO tame!  Along with her animals,  her brother-in-law's organic sheep and lamb, llamas, and his hundreds of free range, organic chickens are on the property as well.



I wanted to bring Rosa home with me, such a sweetheart. 

Currently, Lisa is incubating 12  11 eggs (one broke in the car on the way home)  so in a few months I will be able to take a few chicks home with me!  Fresh eggs!  We'll just have to raccoon proof a chicken pen for them. I'll keep you posted :) 
Happy Tuesday!
