As most of you know, I have come to have a very special place in my heart for my flock. Some folks thought that I was crazy to have come to love, appreciate and value chickens. After all, this blog was named after my head hen, Tilly. She is a funny little whippersnapper who takes head hen business very seriously. One of her most endearing traits is how she loves to chat. She narrates life, play by play. Whether she is laying an egg, outside discovering a tender morsel, putting Dolly in her place or exploring the yard, she always has a tune to sing and a story to tell. Often when I lock them up at night, Tilly is nestled in between snoring Oyster Cracker and Sunshine. She is awake. She tells me goodnight and I tell her I love her, and so it has gone for the past few years.
