Saturday! A very favorite day of the week, the catch up on stuff to do day. It's a happy blogging day. It's a shop, laundry...do you think that's boring, day?
My little hens here are chatting about the sunshine and thinking about where to get more food.
But speaking of sat..Saturday. Blackie, here pictured, loves to sit on eggs and has sat on numerous occasions. Hint to Blackie, "we do not have a rooster, none of those eggs sat on would ever hatch." She is so dedicated that she forgets to eat. She gets all "broodie" a few times a year. I chase her off her nest to collect eggs and see to it that she gets some water and food. Silly girl. The others act like she is a bit off, as well. Ah, nature, what do you know about it? What is the viewpoint of a chicken in search of food, comfort and egg production? What encounters have you ever had with fowl?
Merry birdwatching, Mary
