So true. I would add and some time roaming the backyard with mine. They are happiest pooping all over my backyard which I then have to hose down when they are all done. I am so excited. Got my first two edible eggs yesterday from my Barred Rocks.
Oh yes! My girls love to free range too with supervision of course. We have so many hawks! Just yesterday, I heard the "alarm" and there was a large Red Shouldered Hawk scoping out a chicken dinner! Congratulations on the eggs! For me the excitement of discovering the eggs never wears off 🙂
Love the picture! Silkies always make me smile. 🙂
Thanks! They are a very sweet breed! This is Feathers.
Love my girls. Very entertaining.
Does snuggling on the lap of my little guy count as a source of entertainment? LOL
Very sweet, Melissa. And oh-so-true.
