"Thunderous Tides"Moa, a Barred Plymouth Rock and also the boss hen of my flock, is tremendous in her girth. At times she is truly large beyond imagination, and is seen here emerging from the ocean. Don’t be jealous of her thunderous thighs!
The gulls are in no danger. She is too rotund to give chase.
