Ida the very intense chicken

Ida is one of the more feral chickens of the flock. It makes sense though, she was born under the hayloft rafters by a wacky Aracauna who is slightly flighty herself. It was a surprise hatch a few years ago. Certain chickens more than others are excellent brooders and also excellent egg hiders. We had to climb a 10 foot ladder to get to them on the day I heard them chirping.

Ida always has this intent look as if she's staring with darts.

"You looking at me?" she says before running off.

But I do love her little red top knot - sort of like a hat Audrey Hepburn might have worn in the fifties.

I love that you know each and every creature as a unique individual! I've often thought that if there is reincarnation, I'd love to come back as an animal or bird at Apifera Farm!

She may have a tough demeanor, but her clothes are stylin'!

Thank you for reading! The farm and my art/writing keep me hopping, so might not respond immediately. Thank you for understanding. ~Katherine & Apifera ~
