    In October, our NH_Reds decided that our pine trees were a very nice place to spend the afternoon......... [​IMG]

    Conveniently, this is also by the compost heap....... Somehow I don't think it was coincidence...... [​IMG]

    I have Western Sierra Foothills Bush Chickens. They don't spend the night there they return to the coop at night. However, during the day, the younger and more bantam-y of the flock perch in the branches of a particular bush. Some others have dug out dusting holes beneath the overhanging branches, and they'll trade off throughout the day.

    Either that, or I have a Western Sierra Foothills Chicken Bush that just hadn't "fruited" chickens until I moved there.
