Chocolate Ripple, the Pet of the Day
Name: Chocolate Ripple
Age: Five months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Barred Rock Hen
Home: Indianapolis, Indiana, USA
   This is Chocolate Ripple. She is a Barred rock hen. She lays fine brown eggs each day and has a lovely happy cluck. We have had her since spring, this April, so that makes her about five months old. She wasn't stripped then but was black and white and fluffy cute.

    We really love her as she eats weeds we give her and other table scraps. We feed her stale bread too but she eats laying food every day so she will keep laying her eggs for our omelets and deviled eggs.

    She is even a celebrity as she has been to a few grade schools to teach children about God's animals. The children enjoyed her soft feathers. Chocolate Ripple's home is in a roost in Indianapolis Indiana.
