Meet Myrna! She's a big ole hen from Massachusetts and she just had an absolutely hilarious run-in with a woman from right here in Owensboro. If you're wondering what in the cluck happened, keep reading.
My friends Amanda Barnhart and Tina Turner-Maloney, who live here in town, are currently in New England visiting their friends Amy and Heather McCreary.  Well, the McCrearys have four chickens- Myrna, Shirley, Henrietta and Maria.  Sidebar- those names are perfection.
Here's a great group shot of all the hens. You know, birds of a feather. They certainly do flock together.

By the way, the hens have a fantastic chicken coop, but Amy and Heather really wanted to spruce up the decor a bit.  The coop itself is already really nice. Think of it like a plush Airbnb for poultry.  I mean, look this!

Now, the artwork you see is courtesy of Tina. She was commissioned to bring the coop to life.  That's one wall of the hen house.

But, get this.  The mothercluckers actually have a second mural too. Of course, this one essentially comes with a less-than-subliminal command- FRESH EGGS!!  In other words, ladies, pop and squat and spit out some eggs.

While it's clear these birds have it made, Tina got a taste of just how domesticated the hens are earlier this week when she sat down in a chair to take a short break from her painting project and tried to snack on box of Cheez-Its.  Miss Myrna was hungry and she was determined to get herself some of those cheese crackers too.  So, she perched herself in Tina's lap and decided to try to bully her into sharing the snacks.

Luckily, there's video of their encounter.  LOL!

From grazing Tibetan antelope to migrating monarch butterflies, these 50 photos of wildlife around the world capture the staggering grace of the animal kingdom. The forthcoming gallery runs sequentially from air to land to water, and focuses on birds, land mammals, aquatic life, and insects as they work in pairs or groups, or sometimes all on their own.
