Mavis tolerates much in her little life.
One of the new pullets is fascinated by Mavis when she lays down.
The Sussex pullet continually circles Mavis, checking her out, but never putting so much as a beak on the little dog.
Mavis naps as the bird walks all around her, sometimes snacking on a piece of grass or clover near her.
Every time this pullet does her daily dog dance, the other two Sussex pullets stand on the sidelines and watch.
I wonder what the conversation is while this takes place.
The other chickens never participate, just these Speckled Sussex.
Mavis takes it all in stride. Probably thankful its not a cow trying to herd her.
Do you have a hen that pesters one of your dogs?
