    The weather was absolutely beautiful this afternoon, so I let the girls out to roam while I weeded the raised flower bed behind the garage and could keep an eye on them. Suddenly I had two pullets at my side trying to crowd in where I was working. I've been trying to get these "big girls" accustomed to being handled but they are still a little skittery. So I rolled over a big chunk of the stacked cement retaining wall and voila! Bugs, worms, creepy crawlies. It was Christmas for Chickens! Pretty soon I was rolling over all the top pieces and I had all eight big girls going crazy. Big crickets were jumping like popcorn. Even our junior bantam roo got in on the action and he is a little "big chicken". I must be nuts (or pathetic. . .), but it was one of the best times I've had all summer. Rock 'n Roll!![​IMG]

    I know!! The weather here was great too! It was even warm enough for me to let my little 3 day olds to roam outside (with my supervision of course [​IMG]) They had a ball! We put a cicada down by them and they went NUTS! [​IMG] As of now they're all plum tuckered out and napping like the little babies they are. [​IMG] Chickens are so fun [​IMG]
