Day two: Got home from work. Collected two nice eggs from the nest box on the back of the coop. Waited until 4:00 and opened the gate to the run. Rocky the roo - Barred rock was the 1st one out and everyone else noticed the door was open and came running. Baby the black cat ( friskiest one) came out and went into stealth mode. Rocky flapped his wings and Baby took off for the high hills. Sox the tuxedo cat never even attempted anything. Daisy the poo eating beagle tried one little chase and I scolded her. She tucked her tail and went back into the garage. The bug patrol was in full swing and all the gals went back in about dark. I love watching them free range. I guess the cats are under control now, and Daisy the poo eater is going to be OK. So, I will be free ranging each afternoon that I'm home.
