For a while there have been little neighbors who look like Ding and Maple living here.
Their names are Clementine, Twig, Penny, Hazel, Ginger and Ruby!
We hear that they 're going to move in with us, and we'll all be living in a new mansion!! But we're not sure about the two new BIG neighbors living next door to our mansion. We've seen the new big neighbors, which Blossom and Fern call goaties. They seem to want to play with us, but we definitely do NOT want to play with them or get anywhere close!
Here's Ruby with the one BIG neighbor who doesn't scare us silly.
We were scared when these things came out to check on us. Then when they said hello we knew that it was Fern and Blossom! I was happy that it wasn't something else coming. I guess they were as cold as we are!
It is so cold that right when we lay an egg it freezes! And every hour our water freezes too!
For a treat, Fern and Blossom brought me in to their house an I got to listen to Beethoven on the radio!
Yesterday we got to free range. All of a sudden we noticed little white things started falling from the sky. They looked like little downy feathers. They were really cold on our wattles! All of us Littles got kind of nervous but Dottie told us what it was so then we didn't worry.
Dottie has seen two winters. She told us that the snow was deep and we couldn't free range as much but she used to know a hen named Tuesday who loved to go sledding.
When we woke up this morning there was a lot of snow. Now I want to go sledding!
I am a Silver-laced Wyandotte hen. I live with eleven other hens, and one rooster. We are all loved by two little girls. There is also a big furry cat, two goats, and two ducks who likes us and wants to be near us. This is our life on the river in Maine.
