This is Little Pea, the smallest and scrappiest of our laying hens. And the most social. She just wants to be right around you and see what youre doing, just in case a snack falls out. But in this case, she just wants a drink. The chickens don't have any interest in the arugula bed, the giant sage, or the tomatoes (so far!) growing in the(ir) greenhouse. And for this we are grateful. On the other hand, I haven't seen a slug in there all season, because they keep a very clean house.
