I suspect they were close to the bottom--pecking for bugs unearthed when the logs were moved, cut, and stacked. It didn't seem to stop them from hanging out near the fence today. When I got home from the farm, three of the reds were at the gate--which is just south of the wood pile. Millie didn't come sauntering up the driveway--she was on the "chicken" side of the fence when I came home from the farm. Silly Millie.

I am still chuckling. It will be a short while before they go near the wood pile again. Poor Cocky Rocky. His feathers got ruffled once again. He is no longer Cock of the Walk. Here's wishing he is happier with his new brood of hens to look after. Who knew there ever was a Rooster Rescue Refuge.

Thank you CWS for starting my day off with a good laugh. I just love those girls with their antics. They certainly can keep you on your toes.

Best of luck today re: your daughter's surgery. Positive thoughts being sent your family's way.

Miss Millie went a'wandering again. The DH and I were sitting on the side steps (the steps that are to the door from the driveway). I was telling him about Miss Millie's wanderings...who do you think came sauntering up the driveway?

"Cooo--I've been to visit the neighbours...did you know they have a garden, cooo?"

Speak of the devil...

Have you figured out if she's going over or under?

We know she is not going under--we have hardware cloth along the bottom ($$$$) and 2 ft up. She most likely is hopping onto the propane tank and then going onto the branch, and then over. DH cut the branch Saturday. We'll see if she goes a'wandering today. Can't do much about the propane tank.

This probably should be in the "last thing that made you laugh" thread. I was finishing up the tomatoes (about 12-15 lb) to put them in the oven to roast. I've been tossing the "tomato butts" out for the girls. But, I got a phone call, so I hadn't tossed any out for about 45 minutes.

"Peck-peck-peck--yo! Big Chiclen--you there?"

(Huh? What is that noise?)

"Harriet, what are you doing?"

"I want more tomato butts. Peck-peck-peck."

Harriet was at the French door, pecking on the glass, her neck craned in an attempt to see me in the kitchen. Behind her were Elsie, Myrtle, and Millie.

Millie: "Is she coming?"

"No. Peck-peck-PECK!!!"

Myrtle: "Oh for chickens' sake, if we all perch on that knob, we might open the door."

Elsie: "Oh, I don't know...she might not like that..."

Millie: "Cooo....maybe I can throw my voice and she'll come looking for me....COOOO?"

"PECK, PECK, PECK--SCRATCH-SCRATCH!"

(Yes, I did let them in--I'd found some dried out Brie in the fridge--gotta love pigs with wings.)

Who knew having chickens could be so much FUN?
