We are growing rapidly over here! Lots of feathers and longer beaks! The down side is that the bigger the chicken, the bigger their poos.
They enjoy getting out of their dog crate and roaming around the yard. They typically migrate over to the wooden playground and scratch around in the dirt under there. The kids put them in their run (which is still unfinished) and let them peck around. They just do chicken stuff and are fun to watch. They like being together as a four-pack and when one is separated from the “flock” she calls out in a really loud peep, as if calling to her sister-hens. It’s kinda sweet.
Ginger Pippen-Sqeak (Pip) thinks she is a princess chicken!
Next on the backyard chicken list is a coop to attach to their run. Still deciding on how to do it…
