She's a chicken whisperer most certainly.
Our little hatchling nestled down for a quiet snooze,
eyes struggling to remain open as Taylor gently petted her/him.
We think it may be a rooster since it
is the largest and has a more prominent beak/comb.
But it's also the most gentle, perhaps a cross
between the older rooster which is an araucana
and one of our buff hens.
It really has the most beautiful eyes,
large and heavily lined.
I think it has been watching tv while we are out,
Chicken Run to be exact.
It keeps looking at the rim of the brooder tub
which is a water trough we keep in the back
hall by the mud room. One day I'm going to
look down that hall and find a chicken walking out
to meet me! Then it will be time for the coop.
I hope you all are having a wonder Memorial Day weekend.
It rained, hard. Again.
So much for finishing up the garden!
There's always next weekend.
