Lately Ted has shown a great interest in the chickens. Every morning he rushes out to get the eggs; opening the chicken house door, checking for eggs, carefully bringing them in to the house, and returning to close the chicken house door. Often he asks for a bucket of food to feed to them – throwing it out to them in the classic way.
Yesterday morning was beautiful and sunny, and I had lots if ideas for things to do. But often it’s better to just stand back, and watch them play…..
There was lots of feeding of the hens, putting ‘treasures’ in their house (pinecones and small stones), and general wondering around with the buckets. He’s taking the hens very seriously. I’m glad we got them. ;)
