Chook of the Week!

Meet ...

DOB: 22nd February 2012
Age: 18months
Breed: Isa Brown
Nicknames: Pheebs, Sweet Girl, Sweets
Personality: We swapped Coco (our rooster) for Phoebe. She settled in well, and started laying the next day. She lays almost every day, but I am always glad when she misses a day to give her body a rest. She became very ill last Christmas evening and we thought for sure she was not going to make it, but through share TLC, she bounced back after a few weeks. She is nearly always the first to jump in the vege garden when let out, she is the first to run over when the hose is turned on for fresh water, she is the ONLY one to come inside of her own accord when the back door is left open (that happened when she was ill and Kate let her) She likes short pats/cuddles, and is a real clucky type - gently clucking all day long. She lays dark brown eggs. She belongs to Kate.

She reminds me of a hen that I had several years ago, white feathers in the tail. You did good if you traded a rooster for a hen!
