    What beauties! And obviously you have a gorgeous backyard .... how do you keep your flock out of your garden????????? Please let me know ... I have 5 free ranging chickens and 2 roos and about an acre and half in my backyard and they make a bee line for my koi pond and small garden and have uprooted everything! Your backyard looks so nice and well-maintained. I'm jealous!

    My flock is in my garden everytime they free range! they do not tear anything up, though because my hens arent very good scratchers. Only my roo can do damage!

    I'm mean and have the garden fenced off from the rest of the yard (originally it was to keep the babies out, but now the kids know how to work the gate latches). They do get access to the raspberry bushes which they LOVE. I don't mind either because it's probably pretty good shelter from any overhead predators and it's not like they can reach the berries.
    They don't have much interest in the flower beds, except the one with the bird feeder, the bark flies everywhere there when they are hunting for seeds the birds dropped.

    So the funniest sound EVER is when they are running around on the deck, lol!! for such a small animal, they make a lot of noise with their feet! Hubby recently re-stained it, so we are trying to keep them off, but I always laugh when I see them at the back door and hear them running.

    Thanks for the complements on the beautiful girls (I love their muffs and beards!) and the yard, my hubby does a wonderful job on it. [​IMG]
