why did the chicken….?

Standard

 

foghorn leghorn of television fame

 

and yet another wonderful nextdoor post on my neighborhood site:

Did you have a chicken missing?  We have a Leghorn chicken who appeared in our back yard this morning.  She is now in our coop with our three,  However, we really don’t need or want another chicken so if she is yours, please message me to arrange a time to come and collect her.  We have marked her feet with a purple antiseptic so we can identify which one is yours.

chicken or the egg?

Standard

today, mr. roger, our snowplow driver

came back to our room

and brought some of his favorite birds to meet us

these two are chickens named marco polo and maranella

and they are married.

his granddaughter has a chicken for a pet and reads with it

and he really loves birds

even more than snowplowing.

mr. roger even showed us some of maranella’s treasures – her eggs

and we had the chance to gently touch everything and ask all kinds of questions.

it was amazing because he knew all of the answers.

he sure knows a lot about a lot.
