You can see they are keeping an eye on my camera!


Ada the chicken

Ada vs the apple

Click to see a very short video of Ada pecking at an apple on a tree in my backyard.

Note: the apples have socks on them to protect them from apple maggots. The maggots can’t get through the socks to reach the apples. But Ada learned how to pull them off… Ada is a very smart chicken, although she doesn’t always do what she’s supposed to!
