This morning was very different. Violet went from Sweet to Urgent in her tone. The "brawk. . .brawk" was now Brawk and BRAWK as she paced insistently up the slope to the north end of the pen and then back down past the coop to the berry patch. Things I get to do today always takes me out early in the morning to release the girls from their coop, do a light cleanup from their night inside and toss them a grain treat. My chores took me past Violet several times, and I admonished her repeatedly to keep her voice down or the neighbors would complain.
