Late in the Afternoon


Late in the afternoon, the hens gather before heading into the chicken yard and their roost for the night. Chickens don’t wear watches or bother to check what time it is on cel phones either. Sun worshippers, they head in when the sun dips low in the sky. In the winter they are indoors by four in the afternoon. In mid summer, they are out until eight or later. They make up for the short summer nights by taking long afternoon naps as they soak in the warm sunshine.
