This is Naked Larry. A stray dog caught him and plucked him. Three hens weren't so lucky. Now Naked Larry roosts in a kennel. The other chickens don't like him because they are extremely vain and don't really care for nudist chickens. He's growing new feathers and maybe it won't be long before he is beautiful in their eyes again. One good thing came out of his plucking... a friend of my husbands tied fishing lures from his feathers that were picked up in the yard.
Naked Larry is extremely spoiled now. He was rocked to sleep, eats whatever he wants, and follows us around like a little puppy. We love him!
I love looking at these. They are pitcher plants... carnivorous plants that eat bugs. I'm thankful that they eat love bugs!!! We photograph them every year and try to preserve them in our own little nature habitat. The patch has really grown since we discovered them!
