I have two chickens who live in the brooder in our garage...we raised them from babies and are waiting til spring to introduce them to the rest of the flock. I let them run around (and poop all over) the garage for a while tonight and when I went to lock them up for bed time I found them perched on this shelf up above our freezer. I know it's hard to tell from the pic, but it's really high. It cracked me up. The objected LOUDLY when I put them back in the warm and cozy brooder.
