Chicken Coop or Aviary? – Miller Farm Friday
A guest blog by Chicken Wrangler Sara
It rained off and on all Saturday night. I had to be at church early Sunday morning so I went to let the chickens out before the sun came up.
This is what I found:
A small bird had shared the coop with the chickens during the rain. The chickens didn’t seem to mind.
It reminded me of a song – of course.
This song has no words. It is an orchestral piece entitled “Aviary” from Camille Saint Saens: Carnival of Animals.
Here’s Aviary for those who have never heard it.
I use the piece in my elementary music classes when I talk about music being high or low. And, every time I have to explain “aviary” is another name for a large birdhouse.
I didn’t realize it could also be a chicken coop.
