My chickens can always make me laugh and surprise me.. Today I heard a loud flutter of wings, and loud screaming from Joon, my BR. I run outside and find out her sister Munk, my EE, FLEW onto the tarp that I use in the run for rain protection and shade! It was slippery though, and slanted to keep from rain puddles, so she was slipping everywhere. I finally was able to catch her and put her back with Joon, but THEN they discovered they can fly to my shoulders! These are 9 week old pullets I am talking about! Needless to say I had two girls 'fighting' over my shoulder space, and should I remove them they would SCREAM bloody murder at me, running around to my back and looking for a way up! I am amazed they can fly that high so early! Should I worry about them getting out of my 7-8 foot yard fence?? They have plenty of food and grubs in the yard, but now I know how high they can fly, and I am surprised! I am 5'6". Don't get me wrong, I love the attention, but I was trying to add bedding to the coop and had them both vying for my shoulders! lol.
