I don’t know why I like chickens so much, but I do.
They are not the brightest bird around, but watching a hen scratching in the yard is comforting. It soothes the savage breast. As much as watching fish in a tank swimming around is calming, so it chicken watching.
I guess it more hen watching. Roosters and their antics aren’t soothing. If we have more than one rooster, they are fighting and no matter how many we have, the roosters are always after the hens.
This hen is my favorite at the moment. The rooster hasn’t pulled out many of her feathers trying to mate with her, so she’s very pretty. I’d like ten more like this hen….but that would be my limit, even for hens.
Hens at least give eggs and they don’t need a rooster to do that.
