Mom has started to let the chickens out of their cage for some free ranging. She likes to sit and watch them as they peck about the yard. Polynomial finds it puzzling and interesting. The chickens are becoming used to her, although they still flee from Alice (which makes Alice a nice “fence”). Poly has demonstrated a bit of a herding instinct but not enough to be useful.

The chickens tend to be very social and won’t tolerate being separated from the flock for very long which also makes herding them easier. One of the chickens roosted in the pine tree for a bit but gave it up when the separation was too much.

How can I sniff those butts without getting feathers in my nose?
