Do you see this property? It's very nice. It's not ours. It belongs to the neighbors and sometimes their cattle.
Oh yes, and various birds including the buzzards.
We have five acres. You would think it would be enough room for 17 chickens to roam around and find bugs and seeds. But no, they must wander and make their chicken mama worry about their safety. Every morning now, since it has cooled (a little) and we have denser morning fog, the chickens run for this field. They go out to find the bugs that live under the cow pies. At least I think that's what they're doing. And there are rules about free ranging. Rules that they refuse to follow. Rules that are in place to keep them safe from hungry foxes and perhaps that bobcat I showed you yesterday.
This is the road.
I'm sorry, but I just have to say it. I have to. WHY do the chickens have to cross the road?
It's not safe over there. And before long they start wandering down the road toward the main road. And that's when I have to go down there to guide them home. They just won't follow the rules . And so I worry. What's a chicken mama to do?

Baby, it's been cold outside. I know, not Iowa cold or Upstate New York cold, but cold still the same. Merry Winter!
