So, we might have gotten chickens the other day. I would not say for sure, because they are technically illegal inside town limits, and even though my alignment is Neutral Good, I wouldn’t want to be seen as being on the wrong side of the law. So I would not say that there are chickens proximate to me. But let’s say for the sake of bloggy argument that there are three young Orpington hens on my property at the moment, name of Magnolia, Lucy, and Bluebell. And let’s say that my daughter Nora, who was only three when we last had chickens, has thrown herself fully into chickenophilia. Let’s say she just brought the above chart to me, which she tells me she has made to record all the times she checks on the chickens.

Nora is a very efficient young chicken fancier.
