It has been a while since we updated everyone on our chickens. The short update is that they are doing GREAT! They have been living outside for quite a while, are growing like mad, are super-fun to have around and really easy to care for.
Here is a photo of their normal digs:
They have their own, secure yard, tucked under an old Oak tree. It has everything they could hope for, including a raspberry patch, that they love to graze in. There are multiple dirt areas for taking dirt baths, a swing, come extra comfortable perches and all kinds of other amenities.
Occasionally, we like to take them on outings into other areas of the yard. Today, we took them to the garden on the South side of the house, where there is some real natural chicken habitat. It was fun to watch them do so many of their natural chicken behaviors. Check out this video of them checking out the hasta garden.
