Madder than...

You are most likely familiar with the term, "madder than a wet hen."  I am often surprised to see that my chickens go out and potter around in the rain, and never seem the slightest bit "mad," even when they are drenched and bedraggled.  This hen, however, looks quite peeved about being out in the deep snow.

She is there because Bravo pup was feeling boisterous and chased her a bit, out of the packed-down hen yard and into the deep stuff.  He is not malicious in his chasing, just young, reckless and playful. The hen, however, does not find his youthful ways charming in the least. If you click on the picture you will see the fury in her bright eye.

In contrast to my bird, Bravo finds the deep snow to be intoxicating.
