When I checked on the chickens this morning I saw Big Bird out with one of his buff hens.
I was out in the pasture watching Barclay tear up a molehill when I heard a strange crow from Big Bird which I hadn’t heard him make before. I went over to investigate and found him walking around calling for his hens. The other chicken you hear is the one buff hen answering him.
But the hens aren’t stupid, it’s cold outside! They were all in the coop nice and warm and working on laying eggs!
