Back to her roots

Our modern domestic chickens are descended from tree-dwelling fowl in Asia.

This evening, Jasmine decided she wanted to go back to her roots, and decided to attempt roosting in a tree.

First, she got on the Eglu run. Twice. And from there, she leapt up into the cherry tree and tried to settle down for the night. DH had to "rescue" her, and she really didn't want to be rescued.

Looks like I might have to clip one of her wings. I know this is a routine thing to do, but I'd rather not unless we really have to. We don't think she'd have been able to get up there without using the Eglu as a launch pad, so we'll see what happens.
