A New Place to Roost
Today was another milestone for the girls. They all decided that their ramp is a very cool thing and enjoyed going up and down it.
They also decided that my husband is their new best friend and love it when he comes inside their coop - and that he's quite fun to climb on!
Here he's talking to them and getting ready to put 'em to bed. With the evening temperatures starting to drop, Lucy discovered how warm his shoulder is and just wanted to stay right there.
Of course he made the mistake of trying to look at her and she gently pecked him near the eye! Being Buff Orpingtons, they are quite gentle and really enjoy our company.
With Lucy on his shoulder, Ethel was quick to see what kind of perch his head would make!
Each day the girls are doing and learning new things and we are so enjoying this new adventure in our lives. I can sure see why many people use the phrase, "the pleasure of keeping chickens."
