First the good news. Look who is out with the rest of the flock! Yes, it's Calendula. They've accepted her with no problems. She loves being out and follows us around everywhere when we are out there. She also likes being petted and held. She is a sweet girl and quickly becoming a favorite.
Here is Calendula with her boyfriend Dusty Miller, our beautiful roo that we just adore. Now the bad news, even though this picture was taken yesterday, Dusty Miller is not longer with us. He got eaten this morning (not by us).
We are heartbroken! It seems silly to be this upset about the death of your free exotic chick, but he was a really special boy. He followed me everywhere when I was outside. He spent a lot of time out front. He loved to explore the neighbor's pasture and we knew it was just a matter of time before something got him. He refused to stay home! We will miss him and his wandering ways. No more "where you going Dusty Miller"
