Dreamed that it was late at night and I was talking in the kitchen when I heard clucking outside the back door. Just regular clucking, not panicked or anything. I looked out and there was Rooster and his ladies, out in the dark. So in the dream I ran out out to get them before something else did and found out that someone had let them out by bashing the doors off the chicken coop! I woke up then, and didn't feel real great. It was a really upsetting dream, not so much from the "OMG, something might have happened to my chickens" angle, but from the angle that someone had come in and destroyed something of mine and actively endangered the chickens. I had to sit up and read afterwards to be able to go back to sleep. At least Rooster came out of this looking pretty good -- you know how it is with dreams where you just "know" some things even if there's no reason to know them? Well the thing I "knew" in this dream was that after having his doors knocked off, Rooster had gathered up his girls and went to the house because he knew that's where I was and was hoping to get my attention. Smart dream chicken Hope this wasn't some sort of premonition!
