Okay so I'm out raking the leaves this afternoon chickens all around, trashing my piles,lol. Then I noticed the chickens get real still & quiet.Strange, no flying predators around.Then we heard this sound, I thought it was thunder.It started out low rumbles, then it keep getting louder,lasted for about 5 minutes or more. I've never seen my chickens act this way before.Then it just stopped. The chickens went back to their usual stuff. I found out just a few mintues ago, there was a gas explosion about 20 miles from here. It's just amazing how in tune chickens are to sounds & vibrations... This is from our area newspaper. gas explosion Please say a prayer for the hurt & I believe one person is dead.
