Our chickens have new gates, in part because one of the Border Collies had discovered a way through the old ones – not, mind you – to get at the chickens. No, this dog learned a way into their coop so she could eat their food. She’s been putting on a little weight lately.
The chickens talked about their new gates and reminded us of Mark Twain,
“Noise proves nothing. Often a hen who has merely laid an egg cackles as if she has laid an asteroid.”
