I know, it's a CRAPPY title for a blog post, but it got your attention, right? I thought it was fitting, as this post involves chickens and ROOSTERS... get it? Oh, and sure, there was lots of POOP!
Last week's playdate was at The Village Park in Fair Oaks, where they hold The Chicken Festival each year. I've never been, but it certainly seems appropriate to have one there. As soon as I put the car in "park", these 2-legged birds came jaunting across the lawn to check us out. I'm not sure why the chicken crossed the road NOR do I know why they crossed the lawn in such hurried pace to see my exciting crew. Donovan was a bit turned-off by these beaked creatures, as he isn't too fond of the geese we've run into at times. He got used to the chickens after realizing he was taller than them and a good swift kick could back them away - not that he'd do such a thing! We had more fun watching the chickens peck at each other and the roosters crowing, than the boys did at the play structures (perhaps because it was occupied by the chickens?) There were quite a few large chickens that dominated the "coop", and there was one that stood out amongst the others. We call him ... The Funky Chicken. It was quite a pest, always at your feet attempting to snatch whatever the boys were snacking on. His behavior was probably due to his abnormalty... a mis-aligned beak!! Very strange. It was a nice morning, and one of the very last outings we may get before the wetter weather arrives. We've had lots of fun times with the boys.
