Spring Garden and what kind of Chicken??

Hi Ya'll!.... I have been super busy with all the Wedding festivities... I will share the details of the spectacular event soon... lets just say it was perfect and I can't wait to share with you.

This morning I was decompressing and decided to walk out to the garden to fill the bird bath and check the feeder... I was immediately greeted by the chicken who has taken up residence there, well actually she floats between my neighbors yard and mine. She hung around a lot last week when I had a house full of children and she seems to love company, she is very social and vocal. My questions is... what kind of chicken is she? can she survive on the bugs and worms she plucks out of the ground or does she need special feed? She only has one eye and her wings have been clipped so she can't fly. Where she came from is anybody's guess, but we do live out in the country and off in the distance I hear a rooster cock a doodle doing... If anyone can help me with these questions, I would so appreciate it! Anyway, I took a tour of the garden to share, Nellie (that is what I call her, gee I hope she is a girl) followed me for most of the tour. Spring is absolutely the best time in my garden... I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Have a great weekend!


  1. Your yard is gorgeous and Nellie sure is pretty. I don't have a clue what kind she is though. Maybe you should ask your neighbor where the rooster is crowing if it is their's.

  2. Your gardens look beautiful. I like your new friend, I am sure she will be ok with the bugs and what she finds around the gardens.

  3. Your garden is so beautiful !! ...happy

  4. Gorgeous garden you have!! So pretty!

    How sweet that the cute chicken is trying to be your garden companion!! :) I don't know how to help you on your question though, sorry.

    Looking forward to seeing the wedding details...:)

    Have a blessed week!


  5. Beautiful garden...can you come to my house now? I really need someone with a green thumb around here...Nellie can come too! ~Deb~

  6. How fun, a free-ranging chicken in your garden. I wonder if she'll settle in somewhere and lay eggs...I'd be feeding her a little "scratch" or kitchen garbage. (We did this as kids.) But the kitchen garbage should be limited to edibles like leftover bread, bits of fruit and sometimes they like to pick away at orange peels. I'd be googling to read up on it to be certain.
