Parrot meets chicken

My mother- and father-in-law, who are currently staying in their RV at the house, have a beautiful green-wing Macaw that my father-in-law uses to do nature and wildlife outreach shows. Her name is Belle, and she's quite a pretty girl.

This weekend, my father-in-law took Belle outside for a bit of a stroll around the property. I caught Belle eyeing the chickens, so I snagged one and held it up for an introduction.

Ummmm... pretty bird?

Alas, Belle was not impressed with her lesser country cousin. As for me, I definitely appreciate the country cousin's egg-laying abilities, despite the lack of intelligence. Besides, said country cousin also eats bugs, a definite bonus in my book!
