No “Funky Chicken” music here…
It’s my son-in-law serenading the “ladies”. He’s combining his daily violin practice session with the chickens time out to roam. I doubt very much if the “Funky Chicken” was part of his repertoire since it would certainly be beneath the dignity of these two !
I took this picture in April when he, my daughter, their two dogs and three chickens were visiting with me. That sounds like a very full house but I love it when they visit. The animals are their “children” and, in lots of ways, they are much easier to baby sit than the other kind ! The dogs are very well trained and the chickens
…well, the chickens are what they are and they love foraging in the grass but it takes an eagle eye (or a soft tune on a violin) to keep them from scurrying off.
They have nothing to complain about, however. I had a nice coop constructed on the back of my house for them, (designed and built by my oldest son) and they showed their thanks by supplying me with eggs daily .
It was a win-win situation and fun too !
