Henny again. My ever friendly Hennible Pennible. When I woke up this morning, this chook was on top of me. I felt someone crawling on me and groaned. Cat? Kid? Im trying to sleep in! Holy crapp, Its Got Claws! Open eyes! Its...A ...Chook? Henny! How did you get in! Im still not sure, how she got in....Maybe the cat door? I get up at 6am to let them out, feed everyone, then cuddle up with the kids if they arent up yet.
A priceless story .... would love to know if you ever find out exactly how Henny got inside. More to the point, that she found you to 'perch' on, in the early hours. If it was the cat door, then Henny is one very very clever chook.
My 'cat door' is just a very holy screen door. We used to leave it open, but all the chooks and Regina duck would just come in and trash the place...I put up a cardboard barrier which stopped Gina but not the chooks, so started leaving the door shut and the cats learned to jump through a hole in the fly screen. Im thinking the door must have been open a bit, because Im sure she's too fat to jump through the hole. That moment when I went to roll over to settle the possible 'cat' or 'kid' into a more comfortable position and felt claws digging into me is etched into my mind! I have also been thinking about how she found me and decided that was the spot to be....Doesnt matter which kid it is, they all find and jump on mum.
