Free Range Chickens #FreeRange #HappyChickens
The chickens are free ranging!! This weekend was a tough one, hubby under the weather, a Funeral on Saturday makes for a slow moving weekend. The one project we promised each other we would do is get the chickens out of the coop so they could enjoy all the room to roam! We now have six barn kitties that are running around the farm. That was a concern, also my dog Chance, not sure about him. It all turned out wonderful. I was surprised at how the chickens stood their ground.
The little kitties would run away as soon as the chickens got really close. The chickens basically chase them away. This was Sunday afternoon during the Vikings Football game. It was around 75 degrees and sunny, I had my 'zapper' in hand in case Chance got to close. He did such a great job!! He was already use to seeing them through there run so I know that had to of helped.
Hubby went and picked up the Hay from our local feed shop. I was going to clean the coop once the chickens were all outside. It was interesting that there was always at least on chicken inside the coop guarding it. I was extremely happy! It became Sunday Funday once I had a few beers. I was downright feeling as hickish as I could drinking beer in the middle of the day, watching the chickens and watching our Vikes whoop some arss. :-) Hey we are number one in our division.. Dave ended up getting called in for a couple hours of over time so he headed out around 3:30pm, I retired inside to take a nap since I would not make it to the Amazing Race Premier, because drinking beer in the early part of the day makes for a short day. Anyway I was popping open my wine for the Amazing Race hour.
