A happy Mothers Day!!!

Yeah, I know. Mothers day was like 10 days ago.

And my last post was like even a few more days ago than that.

But look what happened on the farm on Mothers Day!!

Can you guess?

Thats right. The screen comes off the pop door and the chickens get to go out in the run!!! The run was finished on Mothers Day!! Happy day to me :-)

Can you see those little chicken feet in there?

Coming a little closer.

Taking turns.

Its always nice to have a friend by your side when youre trying something new.

Okay, well, maybe not.

As all this activity is happening at the pop door...K is inside the
coop trying to tell the chickens just how great it will be outside.

What do you think, she says. Are you gonna give it a go?

Okay, here comes one of those pushy Barred do it.

Testing the waters....

Yeah, no.
Wow, thats pretty far down there.

And up doesnt look too much better either.

Can you even believe it? Even if she has to walk down backwards...whatever works, right?

And (very) slowly, they all begin to make their way out.

And Im pretty sure she said to me, I dont know what all the fuss was about.

They grew! Well obvoiously they were going to grow, but boy did they grow!!! Sounds like a great way to spend mother's day, with the family, playing outside.

They are officially Explorers!!! Your setup for the chickens looks great. I bet they'll be so happy with all that space to peck about!

What a nice looking bunch of chickens. And a good variety too.
It won't be long and you will be up to your ears in eggs. Good Luck and happy chickens to you.
