|Three fluffy bottoms|
Finally, a day with sunshine. The girls were just dying to get out and into the mulch and the woodland garden near their coop. So, out the three big girls came. The Silkies were content to remain inside of the run, so with camera in tow, we had some fun exploring.

You can always tell when a chicken is enjoying herself, when you see her fluffy bottom pointed straight up in the air. You know that she is busy scratching and discovering wonderful bugs!

Unfortunately, they cannot free range at free will. There are too many predators in the conservation property right next door. So, to keep them safe from coyotes, foxes, hawks and the like, they are babysat when they free range. It never seems to be enough time for them. Today, I think they were just happy to be out and about, enjoying the sunshine and being spoiled chickens.

Due to hardly any predators, my chickens were kept outside all day and locked up during the night. It really does give them more benefits and creates better eggs 🙂
Lucky you! Supervised free-ranging works well for us here. The girls love it too!
