June 17, 2013– Sawyer, Wilma, Tim and I were hanging out in our coop taking a few minutes for lunch when someone let out a rumble that seemed to go on forever. So much so, that Sawyer and I got the giggles. “It wasn’t me,” Wilma stated flatly as she pecked through the layer pellets looking for one of particular interest. It’s not unlike Wilma to release intestinal gases while maintaining an attitude of elegance and grace. The noise repeated, this time reverberating inside the walls of our little home. Sawyer poked me, stifling a laugh so as not to get Wilma angry, but “Queen Red” seemed oblivious to our chortles. Suddenly, an enormous, “BOOM!” blasted through the air sending the four of us into a flying tizzy of feathers and wings escalated only by the piercing shrills of Tim’s warning cries. The sky turned dark, the wind whipped in anger as lightning barreled at us like fiery javelins from space. The fierce storm sent us huddling together into a corner for twenty-five minutes. We were all scared. And then, just like that, it was over. We hesitated, listening for any indication that the storm had returned, but none came. Seeking a much needed breath of fresh air, the three of us bravely followed Tim out of the coop. My foot had barely hit the top step when low rumbles once again filled the air. Only this time, trust me…, it was Wilma.
