why chickens don't like toddlers

Our poor chickens have lately been subject to "Timber the Terror." She has been trying every chance she has to catch one- and she's doing a remarkably good job. I'm actually surprised that she can catch them. She must have some method of cornering them or something. I know that I wouldn't be able to catch one at all, unless it was in the coop. Anyway, one of our hens is actually very people friendly. She may in fact think that she is a person because if you leave a door open to the house she will gladly come on in and make herself at home. But chicken poop in the house is no fun, and really just gross, so we usually shoo her out.

Timber is quite proud of herself though every time she catches one....

And sometimes she even shares with Layton.

So you ask, when will the next quilting post be??? Well, I wish I had good news to share but the slump has hit again so I haven't been sewing anythign really new. Sorry 'bout that.

That is so cute...what breed of hen are they? My children love to chase chickens also! We have friends in VA with chickens...let's just say that the children enjoy their time there. =) Great pics!

That is way too cute. Mine hen and rooster followed me to the mailbox, which would be fine but is is across the street and people aren't used to having to look for chickens on the road.
