Crow’s Nest: Chicken TV
It’s been a long time since we’ve had a television, and I have to say I don’t miss it much (we do have internet, however). Most summer evenings we sit on the porch eating dinner and then watching dusk fall over the yard. It’s not exactly an action movie, but there are a few songbirds still active, the fireflies, and an occasional bat flying past the barn.
Now we have comedy and melodrama to watch too. Our chickens (egg layers) live in a portable pen—a chicken tractor—most of the time. But while we eat dinner we let them out to roam around the yard, and they are funny and beautiful to see.
We have a Java, Plymouth Barred Rock, Gold-laced Wyandotte, and a Black Australorp.
And… there are no commercials.
