Chickens are interesting creatures. They hunt and peck all day, looking for bugs or seeds or whatever there is to find. Scratching and throwing hay and dirt all around the pen.
Recently, we were 'chicken sitters' for our son's chickens, while they were away on vacations. We went up and made sure they had fresh water and feed. They were always happy to see us. The younger ones would run and hide under the coop, waiting to see what was going on. The older one, above, would greet us, coming over to the gate....as if to say, 'What did you bring me, today?'
I think they're all wishing for the cool days of fall.
