Bye Bye to Salt & Pepper

This weekend we said goodbye to our two Polish Crested hens Salt & Pepper. 

Salt on her last day at Sweet & Savory

Pepper -doesn't she look a bit sad?

Unfortunately they were not very happy in our little coop/run. They are sweet birds but just can't hold their own with the heartier and more aggressive breeds (Rhode Island Reds, Buff Orpingtons, etc.). So despite how cute and fun they were we had to find them a new home. I was lucky enough to have Terry Golson reply to my posting on the Concord Carlisle Yahoo Chicken Group. She came by with a cage in the back of her car and scooped up Salt & Pepper. 

I am happy to report that with new names and a new look --unhenpecked heads-- they are thriving. It feels a little bit like I signed my hens up for the witness protection program. Check them out on Terry's hencam. But shhhh don't tell anyone where they are ;-)
