I got brave enough to let the girls (Eleanor Roosevelt, Rosa Parks and Amelia Earhart) out to free range for the first time. I let them out for an hour just before sunset and stayed with them the whole time. I thought they would rush to the (‘the grass is always greener’ ) side but they didn’t. I guess they are just use to the dirt part. Dash was real excited when he realized they were out but he was real skidish and would not get too close to them.
I had a lot of fun watching them and now feel a little more confident they will not wander off.
Sure enough, just as it was getting dark the girls all headed back inside the coop…I am still blown away. Isn’t nature amazing?
