Joshua has been very busy cleaning and digging. The crates are covering the budding rhubarb that the chickens think are great to peck at. We got our first shipment of fruit stock in and already have them potted up until the soil gets warmer.
The coop is back in use. This group of ladies are quite interesting.
They still prefer to roost any place except the roost we built for them.
They don't like the upper level of the nest boxes prefering
to build their own on the floor or underneath the boxes.
Today was so beautiful we had to let them roam.
Isn't she a beauty? Her name is Maureen and she keeps them all in order.
Under the old apple tree seemed to be the best place for scratching and pecking.
Hope they're eating all the nasty insects.
