Seriously?

 

 When most people think of chicken dinner, they don't mean as dinner guests!

Georgette, Penelope, and Matilda (our 'very' free-range chickens) apparently had other plans. They are wonderful egg layers (one each per day) but they are also pests pets.

I went out onto our back deck, leaving the patio/dining room door open for just one minute...and next thing I know, I have company!

This just would not do! It' s just past Easter, but I don't care to have eggs for 'other' belated Easter gifts.... thank you very much.

Chickens!

Exit Stage Left!!!!

  3. They love you! They must have thought they'd found the big coop in the sky! Still I really like chickens, my daughter in law has a flock of 8 or 9 including three black on the bottom & white on the top silkies, we call them them puffy heads. Very entertaining but are the dunces of the chicken world. They tried to get in my van. They've been good layers though.

  6. Too funny. I think they know they are part of the family. Soon they'll be asking for their own quilts.
