||Ten months old|
is a crazy chicken, she is a very intelligent and funny chicken. She
is almost 20 centimeters (7.8 inches) tall and lays no eggs. She lives in our tortoise
pen. Often wild birds come into the enclosure and then steal her food. Nugget
tries to drive them away, but the little birds keep coming back. Then Nugget
gets upset and can be quite loud! She also pecks at my fingers, but chickens
are just that way and Nugget is still very dear.
She lives in our tortoise pen, as I mentioned, and even thinks she's a
tortoise. She eats salad, dandelions, and anything else that tortoise eats,
too. Last summer, she ran even with a tomato in her mouth through the garden.
That was funny, she looked like a clown. Chickens are crazy, but that's okay.
Nugget is not particularly affectionate, but in the photo she is sitting on
my hand. She likes to perch on my hand, my shoulder, yes, even on my head!
And she actually does eat grains like she is supposed to, but if we give the
tortoise salad, she eats with him. Finally, she is also a tortoise, she
believes. Even though she gets her own food, she eats the tortoise way and
everything. She is silly and really dear to me.
