Nesting time is usually a 4 step process. Kay, Fefe and Cece (KFC) are put in their cage, meat birds are checked, Roosters (Boaz and Elimelech) are shooed into the run-through, and then Mary and April are put down for the night.
However, tonight Boaz was a bit cocky.. and decided to roost on top of our horse, Batman. The picture was not edited or photo-shopped- he actually managed to fly up onto his back! Despite what most people think, chickens have the ability to fly. They do so for fairly short distances, but can get quite high up and travel quite far. Boaz is not the leanest bird, so his feat was doubly impressive 🙂
Needless to say the jump down was a little more of a trick!
