Shepard Thomas, son of Lisa Turner, has been known to chase chickens. (He feels bad about that.)
Today, however, he tried a different approach–the more meditative Chicken Sitting. The girls appeared to be gratified by the offering of unearthed tomato plants and bolted lettuce, and they sent an envoy to check out the feather Shepard was holding.
I believe that Shepard’s relationship with his coop friends improved mightily today. (Now if we could convince his sister to do the same . . .)
