    My new coop is attached to the porch, and we have a window into the coop.

    Apparently the chickies believe they have a window into the porch!

    Now it appears two of them are roosting for the night. Or trying to. It’s a narrow windowsill with very little room, seeing as the window is right there!

    How cute!
    I'll sometimes see my six hens standing on the porch step, looking in through the window. They just wait, biding their time until I come outside so that they can swarm me and peck at my shoes.
    I have spoiled them so much, but they're so cute!
    Your chickens are so pretty! Good luck with them.

    Thank you! They are cracking me up. This is only their second night in this coop, and already the, er, eccentricities are showing. Of the pullets. And the coop.

    "Eccentricities", indeed. Chickens can be so weird! They're still adorable, though. Watching them preen is so funny, and fascinating to watch.
    My little guinea keet, Spook, sometimes tries to preen, despite the fact that he hatched Thursday and is thus nothing but fluff and beak. Topples over, then scrambles back to his feet and tries again. So cute!

    Yes! Pecking on the window! I thought for a minute a woodpecker was on the coop. No, just the girls checking out glass, and looking for me quizzically.

    That's a great idea! I would love that, except I would get nothing done all day!
    I have a bay window that looks toward the coop, but it's too far to really see them, but when they are out, they come over to the window sometimes even though the window is a little high up for them. My peacock is tall enough to just look in, he's like a stalker!
