Some people are city folk, others are from the countryside.
Actually, I fall somewhere in the middle.
I grew up in a kind of residential town.
It wasn't a big city, by any means but it wasn't a spot of countryside, either.
My paternal grandparents lived farther west in the same town but in a much more rural area.
Therefore, I can honestly tell you I don't know if the animal shown in this post is a chicken or a rooster.
My first guess is that it's a chicken as she looked so comfy sitting in the hay in a big barn at the Farmers' Museum in Cooperstown, N.Y.
So we're going to go with "she" in this post in order to simplify.
By the way, all of today's photos were taken at the Farmers' Museum.
It's such a pretty place, don't you think?
She let me get real close to her.
I really wanted to lift her up to see if she was sitting on eggs but I didn't dare.
Getting close to her with my digital camera, I snapped quickly, envisioning her sharp beak on my finger for disturbing her peace.
Isn't she the cutest "evah?"
And pul-eese, pardon my abysmal ignorance, but what's the difference between a chicken and a hen?
Can someone please enlighten me? (Thanks. cluck cluck, cocka-doodle-doo, peep, peep.)
ARE YOU KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT CHICKENS AND ROOSTERS?
