Meet Frick and Frack, two new “Farm Hands” in my back yard “farm”. Frick has the white belly and Frack has the black belly. Both are Marans recruited from the Desert Feed Store in Apple Valley, CA. Their assigned duties will include (with time) egg laying, nutrient processing, compost processing, pest control, chicken therapy and general entertainment. For now the two sisters are getting accustomed to their new residence. Their job training started today with belly rubs. When I first bought them, they were wilder than March hares. They responded well to their first training session by stretching out and falling asleep in my hands. Awwww.
