Al Fresco

Just as I was headed out to feed the chickens on Friday morning, our light rain turned into a torrential downpour. I grabbed the camera so I could get a couple photos of the chickens looking like drowned rats. Unsurprisingly, when I got down to the coop Bertha and Peggy-O were standing knee-deep (do chickens have knees?) in muddy leaves, and Stella was standing on the roof. I put one bowl of food in their house and another on their porch, though since the rain was coming in sideways it didn't offer its usual protection from the elements. Still, Bertha and Stella took it as an improvement and started eating.


But this was the surprise of the day: in an unprecedented display of intelligence, Peggy-O actually got out of the rain and ate inside.
