Today was chicken moving day.

Joey reports all 3 hens and 1 rooster are safely in their new home.

It sure is easy when all you have to do is take pictures.

I thought you would have a big chicken drive. You could ride on Lucy and lasso the errant hens who tried to stampede.

I love the idea of a chicken drive! I think I just ran through a little cartoon of it in my head... :-)

There was a little need for lassoing in this drive, actually, but you'll have to wait to read about it next week on my chicken blog.

I hope you're enjoying your unusual snow!
