Is anyone home??

I don’t usually post multiple chicken photos in the same week, but I couldn’t resist this one. I usually let the girls out in the evenings while I’m doing the evening outside chores. It’s gotten cold enough now that I was moving plants and other things inside, so the girls were out of their pen longer than is usual.

As I was heading back towards the cabin with a handful of eggs, I find one of my chickens investigating the front deck. She looked as though she wanted inside. Or maybe she just wanted someone to come out and play with her. I’m not sure which. I thought it looked pretty funny, though.

I think she was looking for what mischief she could get into before she was caught and packed off to the hen house!

Cicero: She acted as though she was seeing what mischief could be found up there. It's funny how curious chickens are.

Does she have a name?
Perhaps "CC", curious chicken. I actually googled curious chicken and came up with a couple of good ones.

What a pretty little red hen! Do you have a hard time corralling them all when it's time to put them back in their pen?

Woodswalker: I have one hen that doesn't want to come home. As of today, she's being restricted. The others come or at least let me pick them up. But that one is turning into a trouble-maker.
