I should know better. No matter how cute goats are, there is still a criminal mind lurking behind those floppy ears.

It all started with Ingrid Birdman (aka: Ingrid The Evil).  Ingrid has not softened her attitude toward her juvenile roommates.  She is, to put it bluntly, a bitch.  I tried putting them in a pen inside the bigger area to give her a chance to get used to them, but it's so hot in the barn during the mid-day hours that I don't like to leave them there. So I spent an entire morning tacking up plastic netting on top of the cattle panels to allow the chickens into the smaller goat paddock.  It sounded good in theory.  BUT . . .  I didn't factor in the goats . . .


  They immediately began to rip  up netting. Fun! Fun! Fun! Fun! FUN!


Goats! Goats! Goats!  They eventually lost interest and left the netting up.  I turned the chickens out.  Ingrid immediately mutated from innocent Little Red Hen to Lizzy Borden chasing family members around with an ax.

 "Where dat chikken go?"

Oh well, lesson learned. Clearly Ingrid doesn't want company. The young hens will be going back to Dear Friend's farm tomorrow.  Sigh . . .  At least Ingrid lays eggs, and entertains baby goats.

is there such a thing as a sociopathic chicken? that Ingrid Birdman sounds like one heck of mean girl! and goats have minds like criminals - you could be writing barnyard soap opera scripts, I think.

Laugh, laugh, laugh... oh dear this is too funny. Huckleberry certainly looks a little devilish in that first photo.

Yes, Ingrid is a sociopathic chicken. The upside is that today, when Dear Friend came to pick them up, Ingrid decided that perhaps she wouldn't torment them for a while, so we decided to let them work it out a little longer. Huckleberry is a devilish little angel!
