"Maniphone, Simon, and Henry...."

In yesterdays post, we were visiting with Maniphone and the boys on the front deck. Afterward, we went into the backyard to check out the chickens. I had the boys throw "scratch" through the fence to the girls. Scratch is a mixture of cracked corn and other small grains. Simon on the left, Henry on the right.

I put more scratch in the blue scoop so it was easier to get a good handful for the guys. Buffy and Heather certainly were glad to see Simon and Henry!

Henry decided that a small handful wasn't enough at one time, so I picked him up so he could dump a larger amount all at once. The girls were clucking VERY happily!

Henry also checked out the rest of the yard, including inside and around the greenhouse. :)

The hammock was a much enjoyed ride. ;)

As they were about to leave to go on their way to more visits, Don took this "group" shot.

Henry and Simon getting ready to RIDE! :)
