This is Crystal (named by my daughter). She is my favorite hen.
She always does this little noise. I don’t know what it means, but
it sounds motherly and I pretend she is talking to me. 🙂
Today, since it was warm out, I let the chickens out.
The oldest ones decided to try dusting, even in the mud! LOL
Silly birds! They seemed to have fun though.
The white ones didn’t try dusting off and this was their first
time outside of the coop since we got them.
I think they’ll enjoy it more when it isn’t so wet, snowy and muddy.
They seemed like they had fun though.
All of them went back in by way of chicken door.
I ended up tossing most of them out since they wouldn’t
go out by themselves.
I cleaned and aired their coop out most of the afternoon.
The “dirty” hay went over top of the snow around the coop
so they wouldn’t totally freeze their feet off.
They really seem to enjoy it.
My gripe about these ones:
at least one of them is an egg eater and I don’t know which one.
I do have my suspicions.
I’m thinking I need to hang something to darken the nest boxes.
