As most of you know, Lil' Bit is my little runt, half-blind hen. Lil' Bit does fine as part of my free range flock. Her only problem is not being able to see to get on the roost at night because she can't see in poor light. Long ago, her and I developed a habit to compensate. Each evening she waits by the door of the coop and I pick her up and put her on a roost before I lock the chooks in for the night. The last couple days it has rained non-stop, forcing me to close the shutters over the coop windows, making the coop interior darker than normal. I noticed that the flock was a little reluctant to go in the coop at dusk with it being so dark inside, so I rigged up a temporary light. I turn it on just before dusk and turn it off as soon as everyone is settled on the roosts. Last night I turned the light on, then came back in the house and completely forgot about going out there to turn the light off and lock the coop door. When I hurried out there, sure enough Lil' Bit was sitting by the coop door waiting on me. She was chattering non-stop, I assume scolding me for being late. I apologized profusely. I took her in, moved Lilith out of Lil' Bit's normal spot, shut the light off and told them goodnight. Late last night it struck me. There was a light on in the coop! There was absolutely no reason that Lil' Bit couldn't get on the roost by herself. It had nothing to do with her not being able to see. It had everything to do with Lilith being in her spot! She couldn't move Lilith by herself, so she waited for the muscle. This is not the first time this hen has used me to do her bidding. When will I ever learn?!? I was going to take a pic of the little wench, so y'all could see her demonic powers for yourself, but it's raining still.
