They're wearing steel that's bright and true
They carry news that must get through
They choose the path where no-one goes

Joc,I don't want to sound trite, but I wonder if your chickens look up sometimes and wonder as well.
I seriously doubt it...chickens don't 'wonder' about anything...they don't even wonder whether the styra-foam they are eating is edible...and...just before it gets dark they all go inside their coop which is a 4' x 4' cube...they never see the night sky.
i have wondered this, (not about Joc`s chickens), but about animals in general.....do they look up at the sky and wonder or do they just concentrate on the natural world surrounding them on Earth only?
We have a lot of coyotes and they howl at the moon...or at least I think they do...interesting question that I too have pondered.

We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.

Many birds have been shown to be capable of navigating by the stars but what goes on in their mind is a mystery to all except them.
