Baling twine can be a wonderful thing, especially when every last bit of it gets picked up when cutting it off a bale. That doesn't always happen. Just a few days ago I noticed one of the roosters who is fairly outgoing sitting quietly by himself. He watched me as I approached and then stood up with a look on his face that said he was resigned to the fact that he needed some help. He had had his own little encounter with a stray bit of baling twine. I have no idea how he managed to entangle himself so thoroughly but he calmly let me lift him and cut off the twine. I keep a pair of German surgical scissors on a nail in the barn for just such an occasion. I did, however, have to get a quick picture with my cell phone..... Some days!
