Around here you never know what you're going to find out in the barn.
Today Zachary went out to do his daily job of picking the eggs.
We have 2 hens running loose outside the chicken pen.
They like to lay eggs randomly around the barn, so Zachary was trying to find them.
Then he found one of the hens, herself, in chicken (well it's not in person :).
But when he went to move her, to see if there were eggs under her, she started pecking at him. 
Because this is what hens tend to do when they are hiding eggs under them, 
Zachary was sure there was something under her worth getting.
So he persisted.
And when he moved her off her nest, he found out he was right! 
But rather than finding an egg  or two like he had expected...he found A BABY KITTEN!!! 
This kitten belonged to a cat that had a batch of kittens a few weeks ago.
 I guess this hen figured she would like to be a mama too!!!! 
And the kitten, who was all snuggly and warm under there, didn't seem to mind it at all. 
I'm not sure what the chicken would have done when the kitten decided it was hungry?!?!?!

Anyway, that's life on our funny farm!!!!

That guy is sooooooo dang cute!!!!

And what a hilarious and unexpected story. I wonder how in the world that kitten got under the chicken, and how did the chicken let the kitten under there!

It's true that you just never know what's going to happen on a farm from day to day.

Thanks for sharing that cute story.
