What are they thinking ?

One of my chickens

One of my chickens

My chickens are the only “livestock” that I currently have, and I often wonder what they think about. I mean, some things are probably obvious, like “When is that red hair guy ganna bring more squash ?”; but I wonder about the things that aren’t obvious.

Sometimes when I’m feeding them, I try to imagine funny things that they might be thinking about. The picture above kinda “says” to me “Where are you putting all of the eggs you keep taking from us ?”. That particular chicken is timid, and can usually be found hiding in the back of the coop.

My Favorite Chicken

My Favorite Chicken

This is one of the friendliest, and is my personal favorite. She always seems to portray the look “Hey Whats up ?”. When I pour out there chicken scratch, she seems to survey the landscape before eating….. it’s quite unique in my little herd.

The Council

The Council

When the chickens are up on their perch, they look like they are at some sort of meeting; In the photo above, the white chicken appears defiant, almost as if to say “Hey, What are you doing here ?”. Notice how the red chicken appears to be planning an exit strategy. She must be thinking “If I can peck that guy between the eyes, maybe I can get out of here”.
