OK so I had this need to spend time with my teen chickens this morning. Quality time, you know?
Their hen house is basically a barn in micro-fashion. 8 x 5 x 12 center height with a mini loft. We even painted it red and we store their hay bales in there with them along with feed buckets, D.E. can, and all the other whatnots.
So last night we had rain...again. (welcome to sunny South Florida, right?) and I'm in there checking on if any hay got leaked on and I move a bale and out pops this cockroach. BIG son of a sailor, too! He took a few runs to the buffet line, foshur! My trusty sidekick, Marlin, dives passed me and nailed him quick and off we were, him and me, moving things around and on the hunt for infiltrating roaches. What fun! Marlin's always been a butinski. Can't do anything with him around, he'll be underfoot or pitchfork, guaranteed.
That's all. Not really interesting I suppose but we had fun, cleaning the barn. Just wanted to share that maybe if any yall got a barn or hen house big enough for you to roam in, this would be a fun thing to do with your chickens. Yeah...weird. I know, but cheap entertainment.
