I recently shared a post about one of our sheep named, Violet and her friend, a yellow, Buff Orpington hen that we’re now calling “Buttercup.” Violet has been observed on more than one occasion either watching or lying near the chickens, and Buttercup always seems to be nearby scratching in the grass. It appears that Violet and Buttercup are quickly […]
