Hopping Chickens at Thanksgiving
We enjoyed Thanksgiving at our friends' who host us every year. Well, this year we had the additional fun of watching the hopping chickens, our friends' non-edible pets. The B/W girl is a Barred Rock (AKA Plymouth Rock) variety and the rust girl is an Americauna. They've been jumping all their lives so their leg muscles are strong enough to handle the exercise. Listen carefully to their calls--very soothing.
