Sybil is one of our original hens. She came to us in a box that peeped, all the way from Iowa.
Unfortunately Sybil's feathers were suffering from the abuse of the roosters, and early on she was forced to endure the shame of the hen coat.
With the lure of warm weather Sybil left the hen house with the rest of the chickens, but unfortunately she again caught the eye of the rooster. Her chicken pheromones must run hot.
Well today the ultimate in insults happened to Sybil. Oscar our Great Dane escaped the fenced yard and went on a chicken spree, Even Oscar seemed to know Sybil was an easy target. I walked out of the barn to see a limp Sybil dangling from the slobbery jaws of a happy looking dog. Luckily he dropped the toy and went in search of new conquest.
I rushed to where Sybil was hiding in the deep grass, amazingly she was unharmed. Oscar was still dancing around us and with each bound, Sybil shrieked at him, if she could have shook her wing at him I am sure she would.
Who knows who I will highlight next time. Stay tuned.
