The Chicken Wars

Fall is on its way and the days are still nice enough that MaeBelle and I can sit outside and enjoy the warm, sunny afternoons.  The chickens are enjoying these final days of summer as well, chasing bugs around the garden, eating sunflower seeds, and dusting in the squash bed.  It’s soothing to sit and watch them do their ‘chicken thing’ while listening to their soft clucking noises of contentment they make while they roam the garden.  So peaceful.

And then came the chicken wars.  The girls were dusting in the squash bed this afternoon.  It was not peaceful.  But it was pretty darn funny.  I’m not sayin’ I’m going to lay blame on anyone, but Miss Buffie is a bit of a pig in my personal opinion.  I’ll let you decide for yourself.  What I wouldn’t have given to have been a fly on the wall in the coop tonight as they came in to roost…I REALLY need to get a webcam in there, don’t I?
