    It is now completely dark when I get home at around 5 pm so I go out and lock up the chickens as soon as I change my shoes.
    This morning when I went out to feed, water and let the chickens out I found my GLW and a white rock in the run.
    The chickens get to free range now that the garden and flowers are done and I don't open the pop door but about a week ago I went into the run to knock leaves off my netting and just decided to let the run gate open. Apparently these two went in through the gate and then couldn't figure out how to get back out.
    I really thought my chickens were smarter than the average Boo Boo:he
