what was going on around here???
can you spot them?
hiding behind Gertrude, my oldest hen?
but he must have known SOMETHING was amiss in the coop, so he swam up for closer inspection!!
...clucking, crowing, honking, braying, quacking and honking...
they are Soooo sweet!!
and think the chicken coop where I keep the older hens is a safe place to rasie their babies?
Here I am holding the female...she was so gentle and calm...her eyes were as big as blueberries!
and she was looking at me like,
"hello...I've seen you before...you seem like a gentle human
and must love birds to have so many here!"
...I hardly had a grasp on her at all.
and my dear hubby can attest to that fact...
(thanks for your patience with me peterjohn!)
I let them both out of the coop (for the second time in two days)
...and told them they were welcome anytime...
but then again...
especially if you have a treat in your pocket!
