Chicken, Chicken, Where's The Chickens?
by Callie on Thursday, April 26, 2012
It was raining again last night and today
and even though I usually always keep the hens in their coop and pen
when the weather is bad
I decided to let them out this morning.
After yesterday's experience
I'm a bit paranoid about them picking on each other...
so I let them out.
I came back later with cabbage and carrot peelings
and found the coop and pen empty.
All of a sudden there were 6 chickens behind me,
then underfoot tripping me and then in front of me
eating cabbage and carrot peels.
They almost knocked me down!
I went back outside and I found their hiding spots...
under the car and under the house.
Nice dry places!
The 6 had spotted me walking to the coop
and surprised me.
The rest of the chickens are busy doing something.
They didn't come when I called.
I didn't crawl under the house to find out what they were up to.
They are on their own.
Somehow, I don't feel very charitable toward them today.
6 eggs today
