Snuggly Hens

I took this blurry picture with my cameraphone because I just was so struck by the cute hens sitting side-by-side in the nesting box.

There was another perfectly good nesting box available with eggs already in it, but there's no accounting for what goes on in a chicken's tiny litle brain. Also, take a look at the bizarro expression in chickens' eyes. That's pretty much a typical chicken expression. Chickens have three moods: pleased, furious and terrified. And, briefly, confused, just before they settle on one of the principle three moods. Apparently, seeing the nesting box door opened, closed again, and then the appearance of the cameraphone was pretty confusing.

Naturally, the two birds settled on "furious."
