A Theory



Meet the New Hampshire sisters. 

Hand raised but you sure wouldn't know it. They want nothing to do with me, unless it's morning and scratch is involved.

They enjoy pushing their weight around the coop. Being the largest hens has possibly led them to believe that they're in charge. 

Fortunately for the rest of the flock, and in particular Miss Pippy, Eli doesn't put up with such nonsense. He's worth his weight in gold, that fella.

Still, I get the idea that they could be planning a coup. Maybe it's the way they quickly stop chatting to each other every time I come 'round.
Conspiracy theorists have gone on less.



~Be well friends....and on the look out.

We had a couple of those who pushed their weight around, in fact one was the same breed as the sisters. Love the shot!

They're so cute, though. :)

LOL! You do wonder what the sisters are up to. Fun post and love the shot.

Oh Andrea I would worry about them if they are talking behind your back and stop talking when you come round. I know I was never able to figure out what a hen was thinking and that always made me nervous. Now cows I understand:) Great shot. Watch your back there may be something afoot:) Hug B

Love the hens'-eye-view of this photo! And the narration is perfect!

Nicki said...

Oh gosh, I am immediately transported back to one of my kids' animated movies (Chicken Run I believe) involving chickens and a coup to escape the farm. Oh yea, it could happen!

Beautiful hens.

Great photo. And thank you for my daily laugh. I would be careful around them. Who knows what they are up to.

Love your chickens. I live in a city of 225,000 and in my back yard I have three chickens. They free range in the afternoons and each have individual personalities :)

I have 2 N.H. sisters too. They almost honk like geese!

Jade @ Tasting Grace said...

Haha funny! Sounds like they're a bunch of spunky ladies!

Elaine Alguire said...

They sure are pretty. I want to live in a farm... :)

What a great camera angle! I would keep an eye on those two for sure, they look a little suspect to me! ;)
