The Walk-About

I was doing dishes at the sink and glanced out the window just to put some eyes on the animals. (I like to peek in on them several times a day.) And something caught my eye…..

Then I saw him. One small fattie was not where he was supposed to be.

The hens were not particularly insulted.

His mamma didn’t seem too concerned. SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESSAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This wasn’t a planned escape. This was just a little walk-about.

He is still small enough to fit through the squares in the fencing. Most of his brothers are too big.

We’ve contemplated re-enforcing the fence with chicken wire so there could be no unplanned “walk-abouts”. But it won’t be long before he is also too large to fit through the wire. And the walk-about allows this little guy to have extra without the tussle of larger brothers at the feed trough. So for now he sneaks in and out a couple of times a day.

I don’t mind his antics, just as long as he doesn’t decide to hitch a ride to town to shoot pool with the guys.
