    I finally decided to let my girls out of the coop to free range a bit. They were very well supervised and a little bit chicken at first, but after a few minutes they were really enjoying themselves.

    Thank you! They are my first chickens and I am a little over protective of them but they were getting too big for the little cage I used to let them out in. So I just decided to open the door and see what happened.

    Oh I remember our first free ranging day a little over a year ago. They had a ball I was a nervous wreck. No injuries of any kind (knock on wood) and everyone including me is very happy. They stay out from dawn till dusk and I have 3 large "yard dogs" pound pups watching them for me. Good luck and enjoy!

    featheredfriendlover I am really hoping Rose is a Delaware. I was supposed to get a buff orp and a barred rock and I don't have either so I was told by the hatchery s/he was probably either a white rock or a delaware. Still hoping she is a she more than anything.
    They are so funny the RSL was out the door in a flash and then she had this look like OMG and she was back in the door just as quick.

    You're chickens are adorable [​IMG] You're lucky.
    I love the black one, unfortunately the only black chicken we ever had didn't make it out of the egg.
