Hide And Go Chicken

This morning I forgot that we were going out for dinner 
and I let the chickens out to roam for the day.

This worked out fine 
until we needed to leave around 4:30 
and the chickens were not locked up.

I caught most of the hens and locked them up 
but that left 4 hens out in the cold.
Poor babies.

We stopped at the market in Meadow Vista 
and then met Kristine at the Cafe Vista 
for my birthday dinner.

Artichoke and Sun Dried Tomato Stuffed Chicken Breast
with garlic mashed potatoes and fresh vegetables,
Artichoke Bisque and Mediterranean Salad. 
Not much picture taking went on because we were busy eating.

When we got home, Kristine and I 
went on a chicken hunt.

Kristine found the 4 hens each sleeping 
in a different location.

An Australorp in the wood shed, 
a Wyandotte outside in the leaves, Curly in a shed 
and a Buff Brahma behind the coop.

Did I get any photos of the chickens... no.
Too busy catching chickens.

Took these photos when all the hens were locked up
and then noticed that 
Kristine had caught a lot of chicken poo.

No poo on me...
I just held a flash light.
I was going to catch chickens... I brought my gloves.
But Kristine did the chicken catching and poo catching.
Well, it was my birthday dinner day.

Thank you, Kristine!

Doing laundry now...
