3 Acres - 2 Free Range Chickens ~~~
This blog is all about every day stuff that goes on around here. We need more chickens! A new chicken coop! Hope all this happens in 2017.
The two very old hens are in the chicken coop now because of the coyotes and foxes. Sigh!

Lonely looks a bit down today. Perhaps the correct word would be "subdued". You can probably chalk this up to still missing her friend, but I suspect it has something to do with the cold weather front that has been sitting on us for several days.
However, there is another possibility.
You see. ... There was a hanging.
You can spot spectators leaving the event grounds towards the back of the picture.
Mr Bear hung for two days and two nights. His crime?
He was rather grimey.
He also wouldn't dry, thus the ear pins were applied without regrets. He held up well in to the torture of the washing machine, after being stripped of his ribbon bow-tie. Never screamed or cried, although there were several instances of him pressing his face pleadingly to the glass front of the washer.
Neither Mom nor I held any sympathy as he went round and round.
"Is this really a good idea?" I asked, wondering if his stitching was up for this.
Mom nodded,"The tag said this would be fine."
Later that day we strung him up before a maddened crowd (because the bear wasn't edible) of chickens, and possibly traumatized Lonely.
