I felt like a huge poser, saying I was going to free range birds, but having them cooped up. Sort of like saying your exclusively nursing baby is vegetarian, since by definition, ALL exclusively nursing babies are. The chicks were too young to go out in this chilly air until now but now it's official! Sixty six Freedom Rangers left their run and sixty six went back into the coop cooperatively to go to bed. Heck, they didn't just cooperate, they raced like lunatics to get to the coop for their dinner. Can I just say how hugely amusing it is to show up in my back yard and have sixty six chickens see me and come running? Yeah, it's just because I'm the one who distributes the snacks, but it's still a riot to watch. I've GOT to get my camcorder up and running. SOON.
