Chickens are explorers.
When the girls were three months old, they began to explore outside their coop and run. I would find them apprehensive, yet willing to go to new heights. This picture is one of my favorites. It was a wonderful sunny summer day and for the first time, Sunshine decided to climb up to the top of the run. The only problem was, that she was not quite sure how to get down. The other girls just ignored, her and eventually I went over and scooped her up and returned her to solid ground. It wasn’t until a few months later, after climbing up there a few more times, that she discovered that her wings could help her fly down to the ground.
