|Marans egg and Pixie's first egg|
|This Marans pullet is a couple months younger than Pixie.|
|Pixie enjoys scratching in the oak leaf litter.|
Eventually, everyone got over all obstacles and she is now fully accepted. She enjoys roaming the yard and scratching for bugs. She loves it so much, that when I tempt the other girls back into the pen with an ear of fresh corn, she'd just as soon stay out, scratching.
Her unusual appearance and difficult life path have endeared her to me. Although I spent time holding her every day when she was a chick, she became suspicious of me after the mysterious disappearance of her brothers. She keeps her distance.
She is quite proud of her eggs. She laid a second one today, as perfect as the first. I haven't eaten one yet.
