Rowdy chickens

Can you espy the chicken in this photo?

The new generation of chickens seem to be rowdier and more inquisitive than the previous generation. Sister Josephine, who I thought was rather mousy when she was young, has taken to escaping, daily, from inside the fence. I still have not caught her in the act to see how she does it, but I suspect she’s flying up onto the horizontal members of the fence structure, then hopping up onto the wire, then flying down to the other side.

She strolls some in the yard, but mostly she peeks in the windows, and waits by the door for me to come out with treats. And she seems to enjoy being caught and lectured. I blame this on Ken. He raised them to be willful and rebellious.
