Mavis, one of the rescued hens, used to be very timid but is now developing a very bold personality. Previously she would hang back behind the others but now she's one of the first to try and mug us for grapes!
On Saturday she decided that if the grapes weren't coming to her then she would go to the grapes. The gate at the kitchen door had been put up to stop our previous two hens from sauntering into the house at will. They had been found wandering down the hall and checking out the dining-room and I'm sure would have been quite happy to sit on the couch and watch TV with us.
The gate may have worked for all other hens (not to mention dogs) but Mavis is obviously made of sterner stuff.
Mavis tries out Jana's unwanted (chicken flavour!!) breakfast.
