    Our coop isn't quite finished and our little flock is getting crowded. Today we built a temporary pen so they could get outside and play. The chicks had a ball, running, flying, having dirt baths etc. All was well until time to come inside. This is when we realized out mistake. The pen was only 4 ft high, which required my hubby to get on his hands and knees on the inside of the cage and catch chickens. Only two came when called,the rest decided it was a new game. At least it provided us with lots of laughs. Get chickens, they said, it will be fun they said.

    LOL. Been there, done that! Though when ours were young, don't think any came when called ... a couple did kinda freeze into position and let us catch them. They were very impressed when their coop was done and we didn't have to catch them every night and put them in their little coop.
