How Chicken Lake Came to Be

June in Northeast Ohio is finishing up as the 3rd rainiest June in the record books.


There have been a lot of storms that have passed thorough the homestead......like way too many.
While I may be annoyed, some on the homestead are not.......for example, the chickens.  


The chickens, as usual, are very busy creating a lake.
It was become known as "Chicken Lake".
And while there may be droughts in other states, here the rain has continually kept Chicken Lake filled all month and at the rate the rain is coming I anticipate it to be filled all summer.


Chicken Lake has formed because the girls peck at the ground to get the bird seed that falls from the feeder hanging from the maple tree.  Yes, I do appreciate the fact that the bird seed does not go to waste......


........however, I have filled the "lake" at least 3 times with dirt and to no avail.
I have officially given up.
So, I guess that Chicken Lake is not "man made", its chicken made.
Just another chapter in how the chickens drive me crazy with their silly antics.
