Ladies, prepare your undergarments

During one of the few sun breaks [Oregonians know the term], I took the opportunity to visit with the chickens, who were free ranging right outside my stdio door.

Without fail, the minute I bought my camera out, they start showing off their underpants. One bends over, and it begins a contest for "Best Looking Undergarments of the Moment".

"Lookie here, my underpants are a lovely earth tone!" declares Edmonia Lewis.

"Ahem, but mine are a silver fox color!" says Jane Morrison.

"I feel mine have are slightly puffier than yours though," chimes in here near twin, Lady Jane.

It was 10 minutes well spent. So I'm posting these for my chickenless readers, to make you happy. It is a known fact, I read it somewhere, that chicken underpants make people happy. I can attest to this, as I feel even happier than I did when I woke up, and I was pretty happy when I woke up. I thought of having a "Prettiest Underpants of Apifera" contest, but that would only encourage them, and would be slightly non-Apifera in tone.
