So long story short, a couple days ago a local news reporter visited us wanting to do a story on the Coop of Dreams tour (a chicken coop tour my husband and I organized). The reporter wanted to record our Speckled Sussex. She's always rambling on about something or another. She was already hanging around us but had walked away. I told her to come back and talk to us some more - and she did!!! The reporter bends over and holds out this long microphone and she walks up and just starts chatting up a storm. It was the cutest thing. I really think she understands a lot more than we think.
