Well, it certainly isn't kale.
Yo! Where's the pizza?
It's attitude. (And pizza.)
At eleven years old, Whitey the Chicken is still the baddest little bird on the block. She's watched flocks of others come and go, and despite her diminutive size and extremely advanced age, still maintains her spot as top hen on the pecking order.
She eats what she wants, when she wants, and everybody else can wait—and eat kale. The other hens are terrified of her.
Rumor is that Whitey has her beady little eyes set on becoming the World's Oldest Chicken, which, the last time we checked, was fourteen. So please don't tell her we have no photographic (or any other type of) proof of her existence prior to 2005.
Whitey used to make regular appearances on Farmgirl Fare back when I first started blogging, but she quickly tired of her rising blogstar status and has lately become more reclusive.
Plus I think she was starting to scare some of my readers.
Just getting to know this little white bird with the big attitude? You'll find all the previous Whitey posts, including the story of her one and only (very successful) turn at motherhood when she was seven, right here.
Oh, and we really do sometimes feed our chickens homemade pizza. They seem to love my easy pizza dough recipe almost as much as I do. Or maybe it's the extra cheese.
