I do believe my chickens are vegetarians . . or just plain dumb. Yes, I know, chickens are not very smart.
I was outside with Speck and came across this fat, juicy guy in the driveway.
Don’t tell me what that wet spot is . . I may know!
This is so gross! I can’t believe I picked up a worm.
No interest at all in the worm. A bit of interest in me with the camera. There’s that goofy little anti-socal gray one back there laying down, not paying any attention to me and my camera.
Throw in some dandelion flowers and leaves and . . oh, yes! They love those.
Dandelions are exciting enough to even get the contentious little gray chicken to come grab a morsel.
It’s entertaining to watch the various personalities of each chicken. You already know that the little gray one is anti-social and a bit aggressive towards us if we corner her (I hope it’s a her!) This black one on the left if probably the funniest one. He wants to be friendly but yet stands off from us for the most part. The gold ones . . they’re so social! When I walk outside, as soon as I say anything, the six of them begin scrambling to see who can get on top of the waterer or feeder or the roost . . they want to get as close to me as they can. When I’m replacing the waterer, they’ll jump right on my arm where the Ameraucanas are way back in the corner . . with the little gray one being the fartherest away from me . . always!
And, about that turtle!
Twice I had to remove him off the concrete ledge where he was about to topple over and land 6′ below on the concrete patio. I wouldn’t want that to happen so I finally picked him up and carried him across the yard. Hopefully he’ll re-think going over that ledge!
How can I get my quilting done with all these critters demanding my attention? 🙂
