Leader of Chickens

I usually don’t post pictures of my daughters (writing about them is enough invasion of their privacy) but enough time has passed on this one that I think it’s OK. She liked to lead the chickens around the yard, and they complied. This daughter and some of these chickens were also featured on the cover of Coop, the paperback version (see image below).

Also, the running gear beneath that coop is the same set I described in Visiting Tom. In the same book I wrote how my elder daughter and I camped out in the coop the night before we turned it over to the chickens.
