Belle, in better times.....Her partner, Harley, our fancy pants Bantam rooster, has very quickly (scandalously, really) taken another partner,
a love triangle gone terribly wrong?
a jealous red hen, bent on taking out her barnyard rival while the "humans" were gone?
did they hire a hit squad of the other big hens to take Belle out? A few of those Dominique hens have been avoiding me lately....hmmm......
I guess we'll never know. But if you aren't keeping a small group of chickens in your yard, you're missing out on the entire spectrum of avian life, relationships, and intrigue. I swear, its better than a soap opera.
