Since starting with us in September, our intern Terry has become the best friend to our 28 hens and one strutting rooster.   She is exceedingly attentive to their needs and especially quick to bring them a tasty morsel from the garden.  While we all enjoy watching the endless quirkiness of our birds, from their almost ridiculous manner of running (a clumsy, wobbly, yet graceful burst of  beak-first  momentum) to the earnestness with which they take dirt baths.  But Terry takes her appreciation a bit further with her evening coop sit-ins.  For a few minutes at the end of almost every workday Terry (aka St. Francis of the Hens) lays out a clean cloth and sits  serenely as the girls (and boy) investigate the creature that has wandered into their territory.   Terry says that she simply enjoys their fun nature and genuinely enjoys being in their company.   Based on the photo below, I think that they have happily accepted her into the flock :)
