Waterfowl or Where the Bugs Are

When I think of waterfowl, images of ducks, geese, and herons come to mind. Chickens? Not. But, chickens go to where the bugs are, and so they spend a lot of time wading narrow streams, scratching in the mud for bugs to eat. They’ll also dig along the banks of the pond where they find plenty to eat.

The thicker the brush along a stream the better. You can’t see them, but there are six chickens hidden under the brush.

And a mother hen leads her chicks through the forest, followed by a young rooster looking for love.
