    I finally got the guts to let them out today.All in all it went well I didn't think they would go back in but
    they did all on their own.It was fun watching them explore their new world.

    Isn't that such a beautiful sight to see them running around and scratching around in the yard. [​IMG]

    Congrats on letting them out! [​IMG]

    I know they love you for that.

    I'm from Leominster. Isn't it nice to see the ground once again after all of the snow we've had. Be careful, I can't let my chickens free range without me being right there. I've had 2 hawk attacks. The chicken lived and is happy & healthy & best of all, laying eggs daily!

    Mine all huddle around the door like they're waiting for me to come & let them out. Geez, you'd think they'd know the routine by now...no one comes out until all the eggs are laid!

    Quote:Ya it is nice to see the ground again I thought i was gonna hafta shovel off my garden to plant this year.
    The hawks are the reason I have waited so long to freerange. But like you said I will only let them out when I'm with them.
