The Girls First Free Ranging







it
It was a perfect day today and so we let the girls out of their run for the first time.
Curiousity ruled the day with Harriot immediately getting stuck between the run and the side of the house. She needed rescued and was not impressed with the great outdoors. She and Henrietta stonked back into the run and remained there after a quick doubtful peruse of just the immediate area. Harriot is the chicken top right photo. Repecka stayed out most of the morning and explored the whole garden, even digging up some small worms for herself. She's the black hen by the small water feature. We thought we would have a terrible time getting them back into their run, but we didn't. I guess there's no place like home! :-)

  1. They know which side their bread is buttered, those hens. I love reading about them and seeing them so keep up the good work. You must have had to talk with a lot of chicken keepers and read a lot of books beforehand so as to be sure you'd do it right, or did you already have this experience? Have you explained to Harriot and Henrietta that they are supposed to be FRRE RANGE hens who just l-u-r-v-e the great outdoors!
