Miss Coal Train was able to enjoy fresh ground beneath her feet Saturday evening. The hens are getting so big! Along with getting larger, they are also getting so soft and calm.
^ aaannnnnd, strut! ^
They love to perch. Even as I put her back into her coop, she climbed on to my shoulder and lied there, until I finally grabbed her.
I think they’ll be pretty happy ‘roaming the grounds’ – when we finally finish the coop. :)
^ Gotcha! ^
Sunday, we took another hen out to run a bit. This has become one of my favorite parts of our day. Mainly because of Amelia’s reaction to them, and their surprisingly calm nature. I assumed they would dash under the porch or at least avoid us all together. They actually try and stay near us. I didn’t except myself to find chickens adorable. They are, at the very least, not gross.
