You may recall last winter when we had a critter watch going on.
|Bill, Molly and Hiker and pigeons|
We've recently had a summer edition, featuring Hiker.
Yes, you're right, Hiker is blind and not really watching anything but she sure knows that there is something over there outside the barn in that enclosure. She can hear them. There is landscape fabric around the enclosure that has been gradually pulled back to get the dogs used to seeing the critters.
This is what Hiker is hearing -
|Kramer, Priscilla and Priscilla|
The rooster was named when we adopted him, all three brown hens are named Priscilla because they look identical and there is a fourth hen, a smallish white one named Belle.
Not only is it fun to watch them, we get these -
With three to four eggs being laid a day, there are enough to sell once in a while for $3.00 a dozen. I was surprised that once word got around, people were asking me for eggs. We need some more hens!
