Chickens Roam Free
We've had our new hens for about 6 weeks now, so it's time to let them out into the wild.
The first time we opened the door at the bottom of their run out into the forest they were very unsure. It was only when we threw a hand-full of grain outside their door that they went out to investigate their new found freedoms.
After a couple of days they are quick to go outside as soon as their door is opened and they love to forriage out in the grass.
Don't worry though, as soon as it starts to get dark they head home back to their coop.
