Hen acrobatics

I have one bantam hen, Road Runner. Being much smaller and lighter, she enjoys flying out of the pen and foraging for herself. Today I took out some watermelon rinds for the chickens and I stopped to watch her get back into the pen so she could have some too. First she jumped onto the wheelbarrow handle and from there up to the top of the dog pen fence. Then, with wings half spread she tightrope-walked along the top of the fence to where it meets up with the chicken pen and gracefully flew down to join the others.

It was the funniest thing I've seen in a long time.

I love the fact that pets can bring us so much joy with just the smallest of antics.
