H is for Houdan

The Houdan’s array of feathers on her head is not as extravagant as that on the Polish. That crazy V-shaped comb works to keep the feathers in place, rather like a hairband. Does this mean that the hen is also not as ditzy as the Polish? Do you keep Houdans? Tell me about their personalities.

    • I had to prune a white pine, so I put the branches to good use. The goats got some to eat, and the chickens got some to peck at and for Phoebe to gnaw on.
