Everyone snugged down in the ticky-tacky chicken run
to ride out this week's weather.
They have lots of fresh hay - a real treat -
along with some freshly mowed grass
(thank you warm spell).
Cuppers, the Peacock, maneuvers very carefully -
life is awkward when you are turning
with a five foot tail.
He and Cue (Q, QT, Cutie, Curlique) his snowy mate
like hanging with the chickens
and are quite calm about being in the run
for a few weeks.
But - soon... SOON he will be back in the garden
like a fabulous ornament.
A fabulous, seed bed ruining, flower stomping
And he knows it.
