Morgan Thinks She Is A Chicken

Thank you very much for the Birthday Wishes!

Chick, chick, chick!!! And all the hens come running, flapping and clucking! Lettuce!
Then Morgan shows up. Treats?

Oh yeah!
Ok, neat, green stuff.
Morgan is one of the girls. Sometimes I think she thinks she is a chicken. Sometimes I think the chickens think she is a big chicken. Sometimes I think they think I am a bigger chicken. Sometimes I know I'm chicken!
This is interesting. I didn't realize that a chicken will stop eating once a certain quantity of energy has been consumed in a day. This will happen even if the chicken has not consumed enough vitamins or protein. I thought they just ate all day. Why don't they tell you these things instead of just saying not to feed your chickens too many treats. OK! This makes sense. 

These photos are from yesterday and are a reminder that the sun will shine again and we will be able to go out and play next week. Yep! We are going to have rainy bad weather until at least Saturday. My fault! I'm the one who kept asking for rain, rain, more rain.

The chickens are going to be very unhappy having to stay in their pen. Unless I can talk Kristine into letting me dress Morgan up in the raincoat again so I can let Morgan and the chickens out. Maybe, if we have some calm spots in the storms late in the day? I would be very happy if it snowed, but this weather is coming in from the Pacific so it probably won't get cold enough. Phooey!

Look at that nice clean garage roof!
I need to get out there and rake if off again this year.

[4 eggs today]

I ate all the cake!

From one big chicken to the other -Happy (late) Birthday! I hope you had a wonderful day! And, many more to come!
Be thankful Morgan thinks she's a chicken and doesn't want to EAT the chickens!
Great post as always!

I wish my dogs thought they were chickens , unfortunately one killed a guinea a few months ago and the other one will kill any animal other than the other dog. I have them confined in a doglot , unless I'm outside with them and have the chickens up. Morgan is a wonderful watch dog , you're lucky to have him.

~ Many Blessings ~

Come on over and look at my snow ;) It is warm in the low 30's but compared to below freezing it is warm, we have another storm coming in thursday into friday but the winds are coming in with this storm and it might be more rain snow mix than just snow. Take care.

I love the very last sentence of this post!

I need a chicken dog. Of course, I only let mine out when I'm out with them. Cold, rain, snow, they are staying in. But critters like foxes and such are clever at finding ways into the coop at night. I need a dog that will bark at night...but only at predators! Good luck, huh?

Nice Chicken pictures, they look happy. My chickens are pigs! Seems like they are always eating or acting hungry, lol

So tell me Callie---how do you keep the mice out of your hen house? Or better yet how do you kill them once they get in?

How really cute. I love the last picture where Morgan just lays down to eat. None of my dogs do guard duty; unless Skylar just happens to be outside and happens to see something.
