Chicken counting

One of our Silver Laced Wyandotte hens waits
for Hester, a Jacob Sheep yearling ewe to
finish her breakfast. 

The grass is getting greener.
They say... maybe it was a Cornell study I read, or maybe a USA Today article... that most animals can count to three. I've seen examples of that, in sheep and goats. I do think some animals have better math skills than others.
I thought of that factoid when I heard myself counting chickens before I locked them in the coop last night. "Three hens, three hens - and a rooster."

Getting a drink out of the sheep's water pan.
