...sometimes even a single feather is enough to fly. (Robert Maclean)

"Specky" is our broodiest girl.  We originally thought she was a speckled Speckled Sussex (hence the nickname), but now we realize she's an Americauna (see the burgeoning beard?)   She will hunker down on just about anything (including a patch of grass) as if her sole purpose in life is to keep it covered & warm.  In her spare time, she likes to lounge like a clucky goddess with one wing & one leg spread out, as if she is awaiting the delivery of a platter of grapes which she expects to be hand-fed to her.  She was the first girl to fly up & perch & she loves being up higher than anyone else.  She is most often sighted on a shoulder, & sometimes trying to fly up our backs to perch on our heads.  She is also our most brave (or maybe just lazy?) gal; she will stare down one of the dogs for several seconds before choosing to get up & move elsewhere...
