Sometimes things happen here at FairWinds that are just funny. Things that most likely don't happen anywhere else.
For instance, today was a beautiful, warm, sunny day. I opened up the door to the fenced yard so Ziva could choose to be in or out, enjoying the weather. At one point I looked from the studio to check on her and there was a chicken peeking inside from the threshold, looking like she wanted to come in. I told Ziva, "Get that chicken," and she hustled the bird back outside. I didn't think any more about it, and went back to work.
A while later my daughter came home. We chatted a few moments, then she went about her business. She reappeared a bit later, laughing and shaking her head. "I had NOTHING to do with this, Mom, but there is a chicken in the bathroom. She's settled down next to the toilet, looking like she may lay an egg. Want me to move her?" When I got done laughing I thought a moment and then replied, "Let's wait and see what happens."
I continued to work. About 25 minutes later my daughter came back,grinning, with a warm egg in hand. The chicken had left her offering then headed back outside. I think I can safely say that I don't know anyone else who ever had a chicken come inside and leave an egg by their potty.
