Chickens day out

I let the girls out of their run for the first time yesterday. It took them about 10 minutes to work up the nerve to leave the run.

Buttercup was the first to go out. She is the more adventurous one.
It looks like it might be pretty cool out here.
Hey, Kudzu, come on out, it's fine out here.

Look at the awesome thing I found here!

What the hell was that?!

They roamed around for about 20 minutes then headed back to the run. They still spend most of their time in the run even though the door is open all day. We were joking today about how chickens really are chicken.

Awwww, this makes me just so happy, Christy!
Look at the two of them side by side waddling around together. Too cute.
That one where they found something was very funny :)

You are officially a Chicken Sister now and part of the clan of Crazy Chicken Ladies.
We're a proud bunch. We love our chickens! :)

Tell Logan that you don't have to be female to be a member either. The more the merrier!

By the way, I know you have a lot to be thankful for this Thanskgiving. Look at how your dreams are coming true, my friend!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, Christy!
Hope it's filled with good food, wonderful friends and family, and many happy memories to be made :)

I can't believe how green it is there. I want to run around on that grass, too!

Christy said...

Adventure girl - they are always together! It is sweet.

Lisa - I'm definitely part of the club. I love to sit out and watch them. It is amazing how much you can worry about 2 little chickens!

Gail - they still don't leave the run much I hope they get more comfortable with time.

Kathryn - it is still pretty green here except where the previous homeowner planted Bermuda grass those areas are brown. Luckily, he only did that in the yard and not in the pasture so that is still green.

Hooray for the girls. It's hard to be brave and hunt bugs. Something might eat them instead. :)

Love the pictures of the "chicken's eye view" of your surrounding pastures in your newer post.

I bumped into your blog and was impressed by what you are doing...I have been trying to get a goat dairy operation off the ground here in PA, but for now we are going to get started with some at our sustainable community in Costa Rica - thought you might be interested in what we are doing -
Have you tried goat milk yogurt yet? It's awesome...
Best Regards - Al Benner

Al - welcome to my blog. I haven't tried goat's milk yogurt yet. I hope you are able to get your goat dairy going. I only plan to have 1milk goat, so I don't think that quite qualifies as a dairy LOL.
