Blossom, the Pet of the Day
Name: Blossom
Age: Three years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Araucana chicken
Home: Oregon, USA
   Blossom is a three year old Araucana chicken who lays beautiful blue/green eggs. When she was about one month old she was attacked by a red tailed hawk which we scared away. She was fine after two weeks of love and care by mom. She lives with her seven sisters in our former green house. The "Wild Chicks," as we call them, have such amazing personalities each one is different. Blossom loves attention. In the winter they get hot breakfast with oatmeal, peas and corn. and have free range of their yard in the blue spruce and aspen trees. Bugs don't stand a chance with her on guard. She has laid probably 300 eggs for us. The chickens all, under her leadership, get along with their horse brothers and sisters. Her dog brothers and the cats are scared to death of them. (She leads the others and they chase them like they are little Velociraptors). She must know they could be predators or something. She does okay when it snows as long as we clear a little pathway to the trees.
