Apple Harvest


The woodpeckers and other birds are starting to feast on the apples. It’s time to harvest them.


I cut up the damaged apples for the chickens, and they came running, even Lucky and her chicks. So did BB, one of our ferocious guard dogs. He doesn’t really like apples, but since the chickens are gorging on them, he has to have some.


Sven, our Swedish Chicken rooster, is making the most of the gathering of hens. You can see him trying to court one in the background. See how he has lowered his wing? He is doing his love dance. A rooster’s love dance isn’t elaborate like a Bird of Paradise’s. It’s very simple. Basically they lower one wing and dance around a hen.
