    This morning I was convinced that there was a plot afoot in the hen house. I let the girls out to free range a bit, but when it was time to go back in their evil plan was clear. One would run into the run to get the bribe then slip back out as number 2 was coming in and so on till I was loosing it. I'm pretty sure I saw Rosie wink at Agatha.

    Most days I would answer "No" as well, but sometimes they seem too organized for it to not be planned.

    I think what you meant to say is, "The chickens are revolting!" (quoting the movie, Chicken Run... To which the Mrs. reply is, "Finally something we agree on.") LOL Between my 2 kids I may have watched that movie 1000 times, or at least it seems. If you don't know the movie look at "new chick 203" right there- that character is from the movie. :)

    Need to see that movie. Mine are just of the "storm the door when she comes in to fill the food" mentality. Not much planning for that. :)
