Chicken security and Virtual Race Series


We clipped the feathers on the chicken’s wings a few days ago, so we could let them roam around the backyard and not worry about them hopping the fence or roosting in the trees. I love watching them wander about. They’re just so plump and silly-looking.

When I finished my run today, I found them looking for food near the fence at the end of our driveway. My clothes were soaked through with sweat, so I pulled over a chair that the kids had left out and sat down to watch them while I took a coaching call. Then I noticed the security sign. This house is protected by guard chickens. I wish I could come up with some chicken security acronym that worked with ADT. It’s the T that is tough. It’d be so much easier if they were all turkeys.

Anyhoo, here is the link to the Band of Runners virtual race series for the summer. It’s free to veterans and surviving family members and not much more for everybody else.

    Amiable Diminutive Turkeys? (I spent way too long on this and got that. Secretly every chicken wants to become a turkey. Maybe?) Astonishingly Daffy Toughs?
