Super wierd chicken morning. Does the eclipse affect animals, kind of like pre-earthquakes do? So first we hear a chicken squaking outside our window this morning even though I shut all the chickens into the coop last night? And find it is our redfeathered n freckled Delphinium ( who is also a character in The Chickabees) who went missing a couple weeks ago! So we fed her some bread and gave her water. .
Then I go back to bed but all the chickens inside the coop are freaking out so I throw on my robe to go let them out. I open the coop door and our new redfeathered hen Poppy is dead laying right next to the door! There is no sign of injury on her at all. Just dead. (She was not one of The Chickabees characters yet. For those of u who have gotten to know The Chickabees on a personal level 😉📚)
I remove Poppy and set her outside the coop. Interestingly a couple of hens and a roo did seem concerned about her while the others seemed to not pay any notice once she was out of the coop. So I moved Poppy away where she would not be upsetting to the concerned hens and roo anymore.
When I came back to the house Delphinium was gone again and there is no sign of her anywhere. She must be sitting on eggs out in the woods somewhere? And just came out because she took note of the kerfuffle in the coop before I did? I dont know. Weird chicken morning. Day before the eclipse! Im off now to google about how the eclipse affects animals. Anyone else's animals acting strange?☉🌕🐔🐣
