The chickens and I finally got around to reading Julie Klausner’s great, funny book, I Don’t Care About Your Band. (She lifted the “bird ban” on her podcast a few weeks ago, so it’s now ok for fans to send in photos of their birds. Here are mine.)
Whenever I look at the chickens on their perch, I think of this line from a piece I read in the NY Times a few years ago, about farm animals during a storm:
In a high wind, the pigs snooze together at the back of their house, straw pulled over their heads. The chickens sit on their perches, knitting and doing their accounts.
OH MY DEAR LORD, these chick-uns are only getting fancier!!
