Sunday, while we were at church, the neighbor's dog, Libby, alerted them to something going on near the coop. Good neighbor Ed came out to see what all the commotion was about. Apparently a garden snake (harmless and actually beneficial) had gotten into the chicken tractor. The girls chased it under the chicken ramp to the henhouse. He was definitely out-numbered! Ed said it managed to slip back out under the pen. Unfortunately, Ed did not take a picture. Bummer.
Later in the evening... another commotion... it was dark so Cutie and I went out to see what that was all about. I could see the hens lined up along the outer edge of the henhouse cheeping very loudly. They don't perch there a night. Closer inspection showed the heat lamp had fallen and only 3 girls in the henhouse. I couldn't find Petunia anywhere! I looked around a bit and thought maybe I was a bad chicken mom and had left her in the run. Nope. Finally, I moved the waterer. There she was, wedged behind the waterer and soaking wet!
My best guess is that when the heat lamp fell, (that was the initial commotion) they all ran like crazy and Petunia went "ostrich" on us trying to stick her head in the corner behind the waterer... it worked, only she couldn't get it out. That's when the others started calling for help. It's good to have friends.
