The Always Hungry Buff Orpington

Work in progress.  Honey's favorite foods!  Honey is a Buff Orpington.  I am reading a book titled Homegrown and Handmade: A Practical Guide to More Self-Reliant Living by Deborah Niemann and in the book she quotes Lara Caldwell who says "The Buff Orpingtons were certainly the calmest and gentlest, even the rooster was a big softy who got pushed around by bantams, but definitely not feed efficient layers."  page 116

That made me laugh so much because I always noticed that Honey ate a lot more than the other chickens and her figure sure looked like she ate the most food.  Nothing got between Honey and her scraps and I love her for that!
