An Ambitious Chicken and Other Farm Goings-On


Stop by the farm at any moment and there are almost always interesting things going-on.  At 1:30 today...


Fresh produce and flowers were being sold...







A wedding was a few hours away...





Chickens were going about their chicken business...


...including our beautiful barred rock rooster.


It was this white leghorn, however, that caught our attention.  Anyone who has spent any time around chickens understand how transparent their thought processes often are, and this chicken clearly had ambitions.




Having achieved its goals, so we thought, we expected it to scratch at the corn or hay.

But no, this hen wanted to be higher....



..and higher...
.
...and higher.

And she was eyeing those final bales. Whether or not her ambitions would be quenched at that point, we did not stick around to determine.

Repairs were being done...






And some tomatoes were being readied for the evening salad.

Summer Wedding at Barberry Hill Farm



















































It was a beautiful summer evening, a little cooler by most summer night standards, which added to the magic.  Congratulations to Caitlin and Rory - we wish you both much happiness!
