Camera Critters #117: Tractor Chicken

Tractor Chicken loves tractors

John has a huge safety problem: Tractor Chicken. When she hears a diesel engine (like on the tractor), she runs over and stands too close to the tractor. As it digs, she jumps in the hole or in front of the tractor and eats the grubs and worms that are uncovered. John has almost killed Tractor Chicken a couple of times. Once, while pulling out a willow tree, Tractor Chicken jumped into the hole the tree left behind. But John didn't know that and set the tree back in the hole so that he could get a better grip on the tree. Tractor Chicken began squawking so loudly that even over the loud diesel engine John heard her and quickly pulled the tree back out. Below are some comical photographs of what Tractor Chicken and her girlfriends do in newly dug earth:

Scratching up the dirt for worms.

  1. They have quite a dance routine there. Great pictures and especially like the first one where your cute chicken on the right looks like she is kicking up her heels.
