Violet: number three and climbing

And then there’s Violet, who is tiny and fearless. I think she’ll always be small (contrast to big, shy Vita).

Voted the Chicken Most Likely To Fly Onto My Head and Tug Painfully at the Delicate Hairs at the Base of My Neck Several Times a Day, Violet is the only chicken that seems to like being picked up and carried. Or riding about on my shoulder (no luck teaching her to say “pieces of eight” – so far).

Though she’ll squeak and run when chased, I’ve seen her pluck treats right out of the boss chicken’s beak.

We’ve taken to calling her “Violence” and reminding her that she doesn’t solve anything and she’s not the answer.

But who are we kidding? That cheeky little runt will be Numero Uno chicken some day.
