    muscadine, al.
    I just returned from tucking all my bird's in for the night & in the process I spooked a first time hen sitting off her nest. She scared me I think as much as I scared her. She is a full time range hen and started sitting sometime today. Well she took off to the cedar tree she usually sleep's in. This upset me, I sure didn't want to bother her. About this time here come's her roo running her out of the tree and back to the nest. He is a young roo & this will be his first offspring. I think he was mad. lol. I'm still amazed at the thing's my bird's do & it's great entertainment.
