    It's quite warm today here in NJ, and a moth flew into the coop. The hens were relaxing on their roosts, and one by one (like a wave) they all perked up to watch this little moth circle the light.

    Thirteen little bobbleheads on stretched necks all watching it fly round and round and round...I'm surprised no one fell off their roost. It finally fluttered into one of the girls feathers, where there was a second of silence. Comprehension then pile-on followed, of course.

    I don't know who was more entertained: me of them LOL!

    Moths must be tasty because I have even seen the songbirds with moths in their mouths.
