Had a visit from some younger family members who enjoyed chasing the chickens around.
We have a large outdoor temporary fenced-in area for the chickens. Every once in a while it gets moved around for greener patches then they dig away at it until it looks like the ground here. The fence is more for the chickens protection than anything.
They know when to go inside at night, but unfortunately when they are outside of this enclosure we have foxes, eagles, and other predators that we've already lost several hens to.
Our biggest rooster. He has a nice shine in the light. He and the other rooster do their best to protect the hens.
This garden has a mix of mussel shells, aged pig manure, and Island soil. Had great success with it last year.
