It's been a while since I posted anything about the chickens. For those who have met them or followed: they are doing famously well. Well, famous may be overstating it. But, given the fact that Cinnamon went through an extreme broody spell, refusing to get out of the nest box as she settled into "hatching" any egg that was laid, thereby subjecting herself to resentful behavior (i.e. pecking) from Vita and Bess, the girls are all on an even keel once more.
Here's a photo of Cinnamon, taken a few days ago, as she sought shelter from the Seattle rain. Shortly after I took the photo, she joined the other two to forage in the downpour after all. Things are looking up, though. The forecast for the upcoming days is looking sunny. We're breaking out the shorts and the chickens are getting ready to bask in the rays!
