First Porch Worthy Day of Spring!

It was a beautiful day here in Downeast Maine. We enjoyed being outside doing chores from cleaning out chicken and duck coops to a little bit of spring yard cleanup. It was so nice that when we took our lunch break, Hannah made sandwiches and we ate out on the porch.


This little chicken (Hannah tells me it’s Sunny) began to show great interest in what we were doing. She moved up onto the porch for a closer look.


Then out of the blue she hopped up on Hannah’s knee.


She had to fight to keep her sandwich.


I pushed the chicken off, but she was persistent.


We’re not sure if she was more interested in the ham sandwich or the Doritos.


It may be time to think about screening in the porch.

  1. That is so funny and Hannah is taking it in stride, lol.
    Our snow is all gone and we have been enjoying some nice weather and getting out for walks.
