Chicken! Yesterday it was windy . . very windy. The kind of windy that reminds me I’m too close to Kansas! I was in the kitchen working and from there I can see the chicken coop/run. It was a gorgeous sunny day but I noticed there were no chickens in the run. They love a sunny day.
Where were they? Could they have escaped? Could the big, bad wolf have gotten them? They were there this morning when I let them out . . at daylight I might add!
Opened the door to the coop and . . there they are! They’re afraid of the leaves that are blowing around. Look at Ruby trying to get her big fat face in the picture! She’s such a camera hawg!
You have to admit, she’s a pretty chicken. Just look at her. And look at mean old Lynn down there (with the arrow) looking up at her. I’ll bet Lynn is thinking . . if only I were a beautiful chicken like Ruby!
It’s to pretty to stay cooped up in the coop! 🙂 So, I go about convincing them to come outside and play. Who’s afraid of leaves? Just a leaf blowing around! (Me after dark but don’t tell the chickens, ok?) Great! Here comes a red one. She’s such a brave little chicken!
Look at that. Six red chickens. That’s all the red chickens I have. My red chickens are so sweet . . I just love those girls. Those four Ameraucanas . . I won’t ever get them again but I kinda like three of them but they’ll never been sweet chickens like the red ones are.
Look who’s at the top thinking about coming out to play . .
But, one little gust of wind and a few leaves swirling around and . .
There they go . . back into the coop. It’s too scary for them out there with all those noisy leaves. That’s ok . . they can stay inside if they want. Maybe today it won’t be so windy and they can play outside without those frightening leaves!
