Oh my goodness! Tonight is COLD and extrmely windy. My dog got out (again) and I went looking for him to discover I had forgotten to put my chickens back in their enclosure. They haven't been free ranging for a while and I let them out. Then my friend came over and it got dark. Poor little babies! 4 were huddled together on the doorstep and 5 were on top of the roof, huddled together, with the wind blowing their feathers all over! I got the 3 on the ground in and safe and then I had to climb on the roof and hand chickens down to my friend. One escaped, and we chased it all over the yard, trying to herd it in. I finally was able to grab it, and, as my rooster is crowing his brains out in the coop, the caught chicken let's out a bloodcurdling scream! Like I was a fox going to eat her! Never heard a scream like that out of a chicken before. I won't be forgetting to put the chickens back in for a looooong time.....or letting them out, for that matter. What a fiasco! Welcome to my life. Oh! And the dog was across the street eating the neighbor's compost....again.
