Chickens Are a Serious Lot

About 80 hens arrived from an egg farm that was depopulating. They are 3-yrs-old and super adorable and inquisitive. Another 110 hens will be arriving today from another farm. They are only a 1-yr-old. All will be placed into new homes. I visited the 80 yesterday and got some shots of them being, you know, chicken-y.

Chickens also should have arms. Imagine how much more awesome they would be with little T-rex arms.

Grass nomming is an ancient Chicken Art. Dogs pretend they are chickens when they eat grass, but they can never achieve Great Chicken-ness like a chicken can.
