Hasn’t the weather been great this week? I’m not a fan of winter, so this warmer weather has been quite a treat for me. Yesterday we got to get outside and start a little garden work. The Tool Man broke the ground to get it ready to plant some potatoes. We made a good little crop of red potatoes last year, and I’m hoping for another one again this year.
While we were outside yesterday, Ty let the chickens out to pillage. (Actually, I think he let them out because he likes to chase the poor dears. He can catch one faster than you can say “scat” with your mouth open. That’s another Nickie-ism by the way.)
Here’s one of his victims. “Mama, look at her toes. Get a close-up of her toes.”
The Tool Man encouraged him to kiss the hen on the beak. Ew!
It’s not everyday you see someone holding a chicken like a newborn infant. At one point Ty had her lying down on the ground on her back, rubbing her belly, just like you would do a puppy. She might not have liked all the special treatment, but she escaped unscathed.
