    You wont believe it! Heck I don't believe it!! Tessie the "Headless" chicken flew!!

    I let the girls free-range while we were out cleaning up the yard today. Since the dog tried to get them the other day, they haven't strayed too far from the run. One of the RIR's did something to somebody because I heard a "BA-KAWK!!" And there goes Tessie from about 6ft away. Running and jumping flapping her wings, [​IMG] POOOOF! TAKE OFF! [​IMG] She flew about 4 feet about a foot and 1/2 off the ground landing right in front of the RIR. Everybody looked shocked!! I know I was!! [​IMG]

    This chick continues to amaze me!

    That's great! Could she see where she was going? I mean, she can't fly backwards, right? [​IMG]

    Now that is a sight I would have liked to seen, a flying "headless" chicken. Quick look up in the sky, it's "Super Tessie" Good for her, What a cool chick.
