Lizzie, dear Lizzie.
She been here from the very beginning ~
from my very first flock of chickens over five years ago.
She's an Americana and an old girl now.
Her pretty blue eggs are a thing of the past
but she's still spry and spoiled.
Everyday she hops over the fence and
free ranges where ever she chooses.
We don't stop her because she's too special for that!
The other chickens line up along their fence
and wonder how she got out.
I think she does it just to remind them that she may be old
but she's still queen of the coop.
