    I was moving the tractor this morning and one slipped under the front of the tractor and made a break for it, my son ran it down for me so no harm done, I've got to re-engineer the front wheel system now.

    Mine do that at times too. Haha, they never go far though, just stand on the outside of the pen, looking around.

    There the chickie is, standing outside the box. Caught him and put him back. Maybe he will tell his siblings how cold and cruel and foodless the world is without me, lol.

    Had my first one yesterday. She went to the other side of the coop and was freaking out trying to get back in after she finished digging in the poison ivy [​IMG]
