    Those pre-built coops seem to always overstate how many chickens they will hold. That's one of the biggest complaints buyers have about them (that and the shoddy workmanship). They aren't cheap either. Our girls have a big coop and huge run but they love nothing better than to be out running around. I enjoy seeing them going about their chicken business too, there's no better show than chicken tv, lol.

    hahaha and no surer indication of how indulged they are when you smile approvingly at the latest "performance". It's REALLY hot today. I got back from the shops to find 2 of them sitting in a little crater they'd dug for themselves AND I found it endearing.

    This is the great stuff you can share here and we all "get it"! Try mentioning chicken antics to non-poultry people and you're bound to get some funny looks, lol. [​IMG]

    @CTKen keep working on her, she's bound to come over to the "chicken side" sooner or later!

    What breed do you have? Is there a type that's scary?

    Anything with wings that lays eggs is considered scary apparently! I just have commercial layers and not a rooster in sight! Bonkers stuff

    Or, a very clever ploy not to have to clean the coops or feed the girls.
