Meet Triple Tall!

Meet Triple Tall, one of our Ameraucana hens. Triple Tall is named after, what else, a Triple Tall Americano! Haha. (No room please :) She is a very sweet and gentle chicken. She used to be the most friendly baby chick and then pullet, but as all the first-time, egg-laying business began with almost all the other chickens but her, she has slowly pulled away and become a wee bit flighty.

The Urban Chickens - Triple Tall at 21 Weeks

21 Weeks, before eating the flower bed!

She’s not skittish, she just Does. Not. Want. To. Be. Picked. Up. A little bummed as she used to be my main squeeze! It’s amazing how quick she can scoot away, side-stepping as needed. Would love to see chickens like her and Marshmallow do an obstacle course! I think they’d be really good at it and they would probably really enjoy it! They’re both fast at the get-away.

Triple Tall did just start squatting though, and that’s a very good sign! That means she is a hen (Yay!!!—no more worries there!) and that she will begin laying eggs soon (we wonder what color blue…?!!?), AND that she is probably going to be coming around more wanting attention because her hormones are fluctuating and she won’t feel quite her normal self so—she will probably become cuddly again! (One can hope! :)

Triple Tall has a cute little “peep-peep-peep” sound that has developed a little more into an adult chicken-like sound that she has had since she was a baby chick (they all do the peep-peep-peep), but it’s almost a slight whirring peep-peep-peep, and when she is excited and happy, or gets food stolen from her, or gets pecked, she has a brief, punctuated “squeaky-honk!” Both her and Sloth do this! It is a funny sound and I get a kick out of all the different personalities coming together as one big chicken family in the side yard.

There are three members of our chicken family who are Ameraucanas:  Mother Clucker, Sloth and Triple Tall. We often wonder if they are all siblings, as Sloth and Triple Tall in particular have very similar coloring.
