E is for Eva

In my ABC theme - life with the Nesbitt chickens, E could be for Eggs - but I have a plan as I think Y will be more difficult and I have discovered some amazing information about the Yolks of eggs - so I will save that idea for Y! E could be for Ernest, the cockerel but I feel I gave him his share of the public glory when I wrote in C for cockerel, 

 The E has GOT to go to Eva.

Eva would live with us if she could. Often when I open the door she is there, waiting and ready to jump into the kitchen - in fact she has been known to make it to the snug, where she was happy to perch on the settee!



As explained in previous posts, we name our pets for significant reasons, usually after somebody we know, ie our pets all have human names. In the case of Eva, she is named after Jon's Aunt Eva but has also taken on the personality of the 50's singer 'Little Eva'.




Eva -  quick to jump into the kitchen and let others know where the action is!




Always under the garden seats looking for food.


 


Eva - loves a nibble of anything going!

 


Eva - loves a cuddle!
(Please note my hair has been rescued and tamed since this photograph was taken)


I guess it shows that Eva is my favourite chicken!

  2. ack !
    I am in love.... Eva is very beautiful.
    Love the way she wants to come in the house. The second photo it looks like she is either saying, come on in and have tea or woohoo I'm inside and your not !
    Do chickens poo where ever the want ? or can you train them ? If not maybe she wouldn't be so good inside.

    cheers, parsnip

    1. AP - sadly they do poo all over - hence the quick action to escort her off the premises! Apparently there is some sort of nappy?diaper available for chickens to wear around the house but we would never inflict something like that on our chickens! They would be the laughing stock of the village!

  3. Eva's a beauty....I mean really beautiful. I love the view of her rear end. How many of us would look this good from this angle?

    1. Hahaha - so true Chris. Reminds me of the animations in Chicken Run. Am convinced Nick Parks must have observed chickens for hours.

  6. Ah Bless her! I'd love to cuddle a chicken, love the little noises they mak and how they blink their eyes when having a cuddle.
    I think someone should invent a 'doll' chicken that does all that... I'd love one! Prefer to have real chickens but, can't have them here...wonder if I could have a 'house chicken ot two?? LOL!

  11. I neveer knew that hens could be so tame - Eva makes a wonderful pet. I love how she just wanders into your house.

  12. Calling by from ABC Wednesday,it is interesting how tame chickens can become, we used to have one that crept in to warm herself by the Aga.

  13. Eva is certainly a sociable egg-layer, Denise. It made me smile to think of her visiting you in the house.
