my favorite time of day is in the evening when i can let them out of the run for awhile. they run between the dogs' legs chasing frogs & are in a mad scurry to make sure nobody gets something they might want. they and the cat have a stand-off with the chickens usually winning. when it's time to go to bed the little ones march into the coop like little soldiers. then the fight begins. they yell, scream, push, shove, scramble to make sure they have the perfect spot for sleeping - all piled in the corner on the floor. the big girls aren't much better. they're up on the roost & they're yelling, arguing, stepping on each other and pushing each other off the roost until they have their spot situated. then quiet decends. there's the soft little voices for a little bit, then silence.
it makes me laugh & grin every time. what a bunch of little monsters. lol
