Who or What is She?

  • She calls herself Lauren but is also known as Mom, Gramma, Lar, and, once upon a time, Peach.
    An ex-suburbanite who moved to the wilds of the Sonoran Desert and decided to raise fiber animals, fowl creatures, 3 halflings, and one pint-sized farmer without a clue as to how. Join Lauren as she learns how to file alpaca teeth, shear a horny goat, raise 3 teenagers and 1 grandchild while cooking dinner and doing the laundry with her other six arms.

What a beautiful bird. It's sad that he's all alone, since those birds rely on group hunting to survive. Did you know they also rest/sleep stacked one on top of the other, often on the tops of catci? I wonder if the rest of his flock died off.

Perhaps he's there to watch over your place. He isn't a "threat" to any of your fowl, is he????

What a beautiful creature. I love the dignity with which he lives alone.

Beautiful yes indeed. However I think he is probably after your chickens, so please beware. My neighbor has chickens and has had to hawk-proof her hen house...

Great photos. Lucky you.
