This is a picture from last year of one of the neighbor’s chickens. They have two, and since their yard isn’t fenced in, the chickens like to go exploring. They’re pretty friendly, and I’ve gotten to pet one of them, although they’re much more interested in any food you might have for them. (And yeah, I totally feed them if I can find something when they stop by.)
My dog, Lola, sometimes ignores them completely when she sees them, sometimes watches them, and sometimes (namely when they come up on our front porch) she barks and barks and acts like she wants to rip them apart. I really want to get two or three chickens myself this year, so it’s going to be a fun process teaching her to leave them alone.
Short post today! I’ll try to remember to get outside with my camera tomorrow and take some pictures of growing things. Or of Lola. Also tomorrow is the first day of Camp NaNoWriMo, which I am signed up for and will be attempting to use as motivation to make some progress on a novel draft. (Another thing I’d really like to do this year is actually finish a draft!)
