Chickens In The Bird Bath
Our birdbath seems to be the community spa. Or perhaps it’s the equivalent of the local tavern. At the very least, it’s the local watering hole.
When I put it out in the yard, the idea was to give the wild birds a place to easily get a drink, especially in the winter. And they do use it, but they sometimes have to wait their turn. There might be a squirrel there, or the cat might be taking a sip.
Then of course, the wild birds larger and domesticated cousins frequent the bird bath too.
Sometimes it’s couples day, and other times, it’s just a hen party.
I guess I disturbed their party, because the white hen left in a huff and a hurry.
The other hen seemed unconcerned with my presence, but she didn’t want to be left alone either.
She finally decided she didn’t want to be left behind.
Maybe now the wild birds can enjoy the birdbath in peace for a little while.
