I tilled up a good chunck of our yard yesterday to make a garden. Today we had 12 yards of topsoil dropped off and I figured I would clean the ole hen house out so I could have the chicken poo to till into the topsoil. After I cleaned it out and put fresh hay down and opened the pop door for them to come back in they just sat there. That was hours ago. Its gonna get dark soon and they are all piled up by the door but wont go in. Its funny really but I hope they go in. On another subject, I've been talking to some of my neighbors and they have been having coons get their chickens. None of my neighbors has an actual chicken coop though. Oh, they've got some rigged up cages and stuff. Weird, huh, seems like they would build or buy a coop to keep their chickens safe. I have noticed though that all of my neighbors have started going slowly by our property looking real hard at how we are doing things.
