Those spurs on the back of their legs can do some harm. As kids, we had to wear those overall pants when we fed the chickens.

Thanks for the enjoyable series ... Why not a book for children ?

Since I am extraordinairely Urban Urban as in City Centre for professional reasons and Adriatic Seaside, for our sanity --- it is sometimes, a nice way to escape the " ur ba nis mo " a bit ...

Margi.

When I had hens, one of my favorite things was working nearby while they were examining their patch of yard for edibles. They made a little semi-crooning, musing kinds of sounds as they scratched; they seemed to be discussing their finding of something tasty or that they were not finding anything here. I always found it very soothing to listen while they chatted among themselves.

Thank you for the great photos.

Take on the role of one of the chickens or Cocky Rockhy. Let them tell the story of the barnyard of chickens.

I can do an excellent rendition of a chicken cooing or getting excited when the fox gets in the henhouse. Learned it as a kid. That's how I got to put the elastics in the ground for them.

My eggs come from chickens--not those mini-milk carton eggs. Right now, they are wondering why I am not bringing treats out with the laundry that is on the line. And, they do "coo" (purr).

Now that the weather is nice, the canoe really STINKS! And, there is chicken poo on top of one of the tractors...you would have liked seeing Henny and Penny trying to drive the truck yesterday!
