Just Hangin’ Around!

November 11, 2010

Yesterday evening I went out to do chores. Well, sometimes you see the darndest things around here. See, there’s a woven wire fence separating the “people” backyard from the “animal’s” backyard. The fence is just a few feet from the back of the house really.

So it was impossible to miss this:

Just hanging around. . .

Yes, there was one of the young white roosters hanging in the woven wire fence!

As for how it got there?  My best guess is something (cough, cough.. Toby.. cough, cough) startled it, and it took off to fly over the fence and didn’t quite make it.

Trying to get a leg up?

As soon as I saw it I went back inside and got two things:

  1. Gloves, because I figured he might get a tad excited and I didn’t want spurred, scratched and damaged trying to effect a rescue, and
  2. My camera… come on, it just took a few seconds to take the pictures, and who would believe it otherwise?

So there you have it, another wacky moment on the farm.
