A visit from the chickens

When I pulled open the curtains  this morning, there were three enormous chickens in our backyard.  I have no idea where they came from.   I love Durham.


They are still in the backyard–consider this a live blog–and I still haven’t been able to find the owners.  It’s very amusing.   Of course, it’s all fun and games until they start eating your food.  When I  went inside for a few minutes, they descended on our ‘mater patch with a ravenous fury and started feasting on   cherry tomatoes. So much for tonight’s salad. They seem interested in the sweet potatoes too.

The timing is uncanny.  Those of you who read my last post know that I  pretty much swore off chickens.  I feel like they are asking me for a second chance.
