June 13 – One of my Barred Rock pullets – the baby chicks from April.  I have two, and they are named Salt and Pepper.  The older hen I have is Veruca (after Veruca Salt from the book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, which is the first book I remember reading).  I have Barred Rocks so I can collect their striped feathers.  They are quite lovely running about.
