Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?

I wish I knew.  I got a picture text from my neighbor across the street letting me know they had a visitor.  I was at work and had left the hens in our nicely fenced backyard with beautiful green grass and bugs galore.  Apparently that wasn't good enough for "Isabella Cruella" the Appenzeller Spitzhauben hen.

"Izzy"  the Nibby-Nosed Hen, always into something.  Henrietta and Gloria are just as bad, but have not ventured across the road...

So, I asked her why and she said, "Bock, bock, Booooccck,"  If anyone can translate chicken, we will have the answer to that age-old question...

Meanwhile, all the girls are on "Double-Secret Probation."  They are only allowed out when someone is home and boy do they holler when I ignore their pleas to be let out of their pen!

Another than that, all is well and will be back soon with a regular post.

Until then,

(Btw, the trip from our backyard to the neighbor's is a very long one for a chicken as we have several acres!)
