This is my blog about the day to day lives of my little flock of pet chickens. They're a happy little flock, although they're totally crackers! If you want a laugh, they'll gladly give you one.

Sleep walking

When Rebecca wants to settle down and sleep, she can be a very determined young lady.

Much to her relief, Irene had finally decided to make her way into the coop.   Unfortunately, what Irene couldn't decide was just where she wanted sleep this time.   So she stopped and stood in the middle of the floor to ponder her options.

Rebecca probably thought this was a bit unusual, but in her eyes Irene is never wrong.  So she started to snuggle into the big girl's feathers as normal.   But Irene hadn't made her mind up at all, and wandered across to the other side of the coop, then back again, then to a different location altogether.   Each time she stopped for a think, Rebecca began the snuggling in process.  And each time, she'd barely got started before Irene took off again.

In the end, she decided that her best course of action was to duck in between Irene's legs and settle herself in from there.   "Duck" is the operative word because now, instead of walking round the coop, Irene was forced to waddle around with a bantam beneath her tummy!

Eventually Irene, complete with her Araucana shadow, decided where she was going to spend the night.  I hope they both slept well!
