While my son was away for a long weekend I did a little chicken-sittin' (aka sittin' and watchin' the chickens).  Introducing (in random order, since I don't remember which is which) Pebbles; Minnie; Bessie; Dixie; Daisy; Daisy Mae; and of course, Foghorn Leghorn (a bit gender-confused since all of these are girl chickens...uh....hens)
They have the coolest abode ever
Quite the ritzy place
It's hypnotizing to watch calming and zen
They even have a rose garden
AND....I just received a text saying that the very FIRST egg was delivered by....DAISY! (one of the white hens)
I don't know much about chickens, but still dream of having a few some day.....along with honey bees, goats, a large cottage garden, vistas of farmland with no houses in sight, and of course, a cool old barn with some hard-working barn cats!
