The girls of the flock, of course, have been gossiping about it for some time now.
Honey, my chicken-free-spirit, has been hanging out lately around the chicken coop. She hasn't done this in almost three years. At first I thought she was considering reintegrating herself with the flock and I got really excited.
But then I realized, it's not necessarily the entire flock that she's interested in.
It's slowly becoming clear that they have a bit of a "thang" going on.
Honey does all sorts of flamboyant-chicken-things to try to impress Roopert.
I don't blame her a bit; he is awfully handsome.
Except for sometimes, when he thinks nobody is watching. I caught this shot yesterday through my kitchen porch door.
He is actually very attentive to her. Where can all this lead? We shall see. Perhaps I should have titled this post: A Belated Valentine Tale?
