My chickens continue to be a big source of amusement to me. It was miserable hot yesterday so I decided to slice up some watermelon for the girls. All the hens were done with their egglaying for the day except Maggie, my bantam brahma. I laid the slices of watermelon on the ground in the chicken yard. Maggie can't see the yard from the nestboxes so somebody's clucking must have alerted her to the feast. Maggie finished up with her business in a hurry and came flying out of the coop to get her share. She got her share of the melon but suddenly returned to the coop. Once inside she started singing the egg song. Better late than never.
