I just got four 14 week old pullets. A week ago. My first ever. I'm already in love! But the run wasn't complete. It became clear right away that we had to finish the run so they could get out of their nice but small coop. We did it today and for immediately introduced the girls to their new play ground. Then we went inside to have dinner. I have always thought the chickens' major predators would be my own two labrador retrievers. But I saw one of my pups standing guard in the yard over a chicken that had flown the coop. The chicken was marching back and forth trying to find a way back in while the dog stood at attention waiting for me to come out and remedy the situation. I was amazed and so pleased I almost cried. Once we got the poor scared little bird back in with her friends. Tomorrow we put the roof on the run. And contemplate the possibility of limited, only when I'm home, free ranging.
