Bored Henwives, The Next Generation

Who're you?

What is she doing here?

Maybe if we ignore her, she'll go away.

That didn't work.

Mama? A little help?

Time for a little reinforcement.

That didn't help either.

Bring out the big gun. That'll get rid of her.

I was just done, that's all. The thought of Big Daddy's spurs that close to me had nothing to do with it. Really, he is a sweetie pie and has never attacked anybody. None of my roosters have. They're as peaceloving as I am.

By the way, in those photos? I think we have a cockerel (young boy chicken) on the left, and a pullet (young girl chicken) on the right. See the size of his comb (the fleshy part in the middle of his head) in comparison to her's?

It is incredibly windy here today, 25-35 mph, with gusts to 50mph the last forecast I saw. It has since (above photos taken maybe an hour ago) completely clouded over, and the state might see some flurries today. Oh, look. It is snowing right now. Forget the might part. Windchill is 27.

I feel an urge to bake something coming on.

Thanks, but it's all relative. You should hear me whine when it gets over 90 here in the summer.

Still ovenless here, so bake away! I love your chicks (are they still chicks when they're almost grown?)
