    Not true!!! They love you and are trying to come see you!:loveWhen you appear this is how they feel: :wee:wee:weeOf course since you are worried about those predators you feel like this: :barnie:he:th
    Chicken ladies must adopt a Roseann Rosannadanna attitude. "It's always something"! And it makes us laugh in the end.:ya:lau
     
  6. Maybe I'll have to give them some extra treats then ;)

    When I built my run I ran the chicken wire along the ground about 2 feet wide. I was more worried about something digging into the run. Didn't realize it would help keep the chickens in. They can really dig!!
