October's hen of the month is our one year old australorp, Matilda. She's the larger of our two australorps. Matilda struts her stuff all over the coop as if she is a queen. She has a regal look and always holds her head high. When it' s time to eat, the other hens get out of her way. But when it comes to our family, she is as sweet as can be. Here she is striking a pose.
