Pet of the Day

Pet of the Day. Today is Lady Fanny's day in the spotlight!
 Lady Fanny is a Speckled Sussex, a very old English breed.
 She loves to be a mother, so I get her some fertilized eggs every year and let her hatch them.
 Two years ago, it was Coronation Sussex, a beautiful variety developed for the coronation of Edward VIII. He was never crowned, because he abdicated the throne to marry Wallis Simpson, so the variety never got much notice.
 This past year she hatched two wild turkey eggs. She enjoyed raising them, but they were soon biger than she is.
Karen invited me to be submit one of my hens as Pet of the Day. Hens can be farm livestock or cherished pets. Consider submitting your chickens and other companion animals to Karen at Pet of the Day.
