Our chicken Choke

A couple of evenings ago, I went to put the chickens to bed only to find Choke dancing along our fence line, but in the neighbour's yard. This is the second time I've found her there.
I coaxed her back with some grapes, I'm not sure if that really worked or if the 'roosting' instinct is what brought her back because as soon as she jumped onto the fence, she flew into the cedar hedge. I grabbed a towel that happened to be outside and literally pushed her out of the hedge (don't worry, she wasn't injured - just really pissed off). Then, like a dog, I herded her back to the coop with her squawking all the way.
What a punk.
Sorry for the fuzziness. This is choke in the wrong yard

And here's her behind in the cedar hedge


  1. Would you ever have thought one day you'd be chasing a chicken out of the bushes?

  2. No. But as annoying as it was, it kinda makes me happy.

  3. A bird in hand is worth 2 in the bush dane
