It looks like Henrietta has actually laid at least one egg! I have not rooted through the bushes to see if there are any more, but these two photos certainly do look like chicken's eggs to me. I did hear her clucking loudly one afternoon and I said to the man of the house as a joke, "Maybe she's laid an egg!".
What ate the eggs is another question, but Henrietta is still around, and so far has left our begonias alone, since I stated hissing at her every time she came near them. Can you train chickens, I wonder?
I heard loud clucking coming from next door today, Henrietta's original home, so it looks like they may have more chickens. I hope their coop is secure. One is entirely enough for us.
I have at last begun working on more ATC's. The first one is a new technique for me -- pen and ink drawing and then coloring.
