    I have a huge test to study for. Today was far too nice to sit in the house with my nose in a book, so I grabbed a blanket and headed outside to sit under the tree. In the span of 2 hours, I think I studied and colored 4 muscles because every time I got into a groove a chicken magically appeared on my book. They'd happily stand there staring and chirping, start picking through my colored pencil box, and trying to sample my cup of tea.

    I came prepared with a pocketful of grapes and a crumbled up string cheese stick. A quick flick of the wrist toward the bushes and the flock would disappear for about 10 minutes, only to come back and start the process over again. [​IMG]

    I SO wish I'd gotten pictures. I didn't get much done, but they were too cute!

    "You dont really buy this, do you Mom?"



    "Study break?"

    "You need more purple!"

    "Or blue... How about blue?"

    "One lump or two?"

    Whenever I go outside to read, I always end up with chickens in my lap. [​IMG] It's so cute when they shove their heads under my book to get my attention. I don't get much reading done since it inevitably turns into a cuddle session. [​IMG]

    So cute, they are trying to figure out what is so good about this stuff? It is not edible and not soft enough for a nest.

    I had an book project due recently, I wanted to be with the chickens and outside, so I went out to read... bad idea [​IMG] I would get about 1/2 an page, and then they would do something intersting. [​IMG] [​IMG] ... like start singing because they found a bug, or take an cute dust bath, or come up and try to read my book [​IMG] . They are so cute. [​IMG] [​IMG] Love your story, and chickens.
