    lol yea they are always sticking their head out through the holes. Thankfully their mommy is in there with them and any time
    one of the cats come by she fluffs up like a puffer fish and swaqs and flaps her wings till the chickies all run hide under their dog house.

    She does that any time a bird flies over top also we had to put mesh over the top cause we have too many hawks in the area.

    I love the way they are all lined up against the fence looking out.
    "Okay babies.. head count time. Line up... "

    lol thats true...

    Every morning when we put fresh feed in they all follow in a line against the fence.

    Their momma has been teaching them to fly off the top of the dog house lol I will get pictures of her doing it soon
    as I can catch her while she is doing it.

    Very interesting! It should be a form of art, I've been able to take some absolute gems by not holding the camera still enough :lol:
    I think it's cute how you can see that chick, in the middle of all the other stuff. :p

    ah, it's been too long since I photographed my chickens. I just took a few pics, I might upload them now. :)
