    My plow man came to do the barn driveway this a.m. and scared the daylights out of the chickens. The rooster and this 3 year old hen made a mad dash for the coop ramp and got stuck in the snow on the ramp. I headed into the house to grab the camera after I was sure they were okay.

    Every ones seemed to be back in the coop when I got back and I thought I missed a cute pic of the two of them chest deep in the snow. Then I looked 20 feet across the pen and found this...not a track in sight so she must have flown there.

    She was stuck and no way she was moving on her own, really glad I saw her and picked her up to return to the coop.

    I hope you don't mind that I swiped the image for my desktop wallpaper! That image makes me smile, so it will help me through my workday.

    That is too cute!! You know she was thinking "Quit taking pictures and get me the H*** out of here!"

    I've been trying to think of a witty card saying you could use, but I can't think of anything yet...

    I thought she was being awful quiet while I snapped a few pictures. Then when I tried to make her move, she just hunkered (is that a word?) down more. Then all H#ll broke loose, she is the only one that I have that hates to be picked up. I bought her as a year old and she has no human social skills.
