I stood outside the hen house waiting for the hens to come out this morning.
They kept me waiting.
When they finally did come out, they were not interested in the ramp I tentatively set up yesterday. Kitty and Anne looked at it like it was just in their way. And White Hen, who seemed grateful for it yesterday, practically flew out of the coop.
Of course Zip played a part in that, chasing them briefly before losing interest. Later in the day I caught Zip in the hen house again.
Although he won’t go in when the hens are inside. I saw they put up a fuss when he tried. He backed off, it’s probably the only place on the farm he won’t go.
