    We spent the day doing yard work and outside clean up....about a half hour after cleaning the coop my son noticed the chickens had gotten out! Noone is allowed to go out of the coop until we finish off the foxes but it was beautiful and we were outside so it was OK. So my son and I were raking leaves on the edge of the yard and found a worm.....one of the hens bolted over and snatched it before I could bend down to pick it up to throw to her. So long story short.....the DH comes around the corner about an hour later to find me and my 2 kids sitting in the front yard digging a hole with the flock of 10 chickens jumping around us plucking worms and bugs out of the dirt. [​IMG] I assured him that we would put the grass back when we were done. hehehehe [​IMG]

    [​IMG] My fiance is the one out there digging the holes for them. He likes feeding them worms and bugs. He loved it when the girls followed behind him when he tilled the garden.
