Disappearing Chickens!

Dottie Chicken is my old, wily Spangled Hamburg hen.
As striking as her coloring appears when she's just wandering in the grass, 
it's really impressive to see how fast she can disappear
when she enters any kind of foliage!

You wouldn't think it, I know.
But I shot a little 20 second video
so you could see how neatly she disappears
into the garden, among the hostas.
She turns behind a garden ornament and - gone!
Check the video on YouTube:

Even funnier, watch how an entire little
flock of chickens appears out from under
the protection of a large Che (Cudrania tricuspidata) bush 
out in the middle of the main field/yard.
