Over the past couple of weeks we have started to let our little flock free range, under our supervision, in the fenced garden area. Their run has a gate that opens into the garden, and they are waiting anxiously for us to allow them to roam when we go up to care for them each day. We don't leave them out without being there to supervise them, as we have resident hawks and owls. They really love running around the garden, scratching, hunting and eating. And we love watching them. They are so funny. The other day Ginger uncovered a worm and Puff chased her all around the garden trying to take it from her. They were like a couple of kids. And they are rewarding us with a bounty of delicious eggs........enough for us and to share.......anywhere from two to six eggs daily.
Chicken keeping has been challenging, hard work and immensely rewarding. I love my little flock!
