    My oldest chickies are now allowed in their very own outdoor run. Still havent covered it, so they are only allowed outside with adult supervision. I have 3 blue rocks, 4 splash rocks, 2 aussies, 3 aracaunas, and 2 americaunas/EE's. The rocks are from Jim Cox, and the rest are from Jody (hinkjc). First is my trusty chicken helper...

    And finally all the chickies having just the best time wallowing in the dirt. They sometimes get so deep that all you can see is their backs...they are so funny.

    Thanks. Sweetie is just the best thing in my life...always happy and helpful and full of her self. I can't imagine my life without her. And her brother Mikey is wonderful too, just more the couch potato type. Couldnt care less about the chickies.

    Halo, how do you keep your sheltie from nabbing the chickies? If you weren't supervising, would she chase them?

    No, they dont bother the chickies at all. I have them in the house all day long while Im at work. I have 4 brooders in the house, on the floor, with no tops on them. They never touch them. They are the BEST puppies.
