The chickens and I finally got around to reading Julie Klausner's great, funny book, I Don’t Care About Your Band. (She lifted the “bird ban" on her podcast a few weeks ago, so it’s now ok for fans to send in photos of their birds. Here are mine.)
Whenever I look at the chickens on their perch, I think of this line from a piece I read in the NY Times a few years ago, about farm animals during a storm:
In a high wind, the pigs snooze together at the back of their house, straw pulled over their heads. The chickens sit on their perches, knitting and doing their accounts.
