So when I got home last night, all I wanted to do was go to bed. I stopped in the barn to make sure the ducks had come in, closed the hatch door, and the dogs and I retired.
Imagine my shame this morning when Ulani announced there was a chicken outside.
After putting Ulani safely indoors, I raced back and scooped up the chilly hen. She squawked at first, but as soon as I held her tight to my jacket she snuggled in. I brought her into the barn and put her in a nest box. A little cracked corn and she seemed much happier.
But I will be much more vigilant about checking to see that everyone is indoors from now on. I guess it's another sign of spring!
