chickens in the coop

The girls have officially moved out to the coop. Of course we have had cold rainy days for the past two days while they have been there. They seem to be fine though. They love playing in the dirt, pecking at the grass and gobbling up bugs. They have also become pros at the ramp, even playing king of the mountain sometimes. They are much happier in their new digs, and I am so happy to have them out of the house.

I had to stop in and visit! Love the chickens, I can't wait to get some. I'm not quite ready yet, as my husband needs to get back from a deployment next spring to build the coop, but as I walked my grapevines yesterday and watched in horror at all the Japanese Beetles chomping down on them, I was cussing myself for not making the coop a priority before he left! Saw your last post, too - I don't hunt but I do cook game that is given to me, and you can tell the difference on the meat that was processed right away and packaged properly. The last venison we had was a tenderloin that was better than any filet mignon ever tasted! We also go the humanely raised way with our other meat, definitely not cheaper, but tastes great and makes us feel better to be compassionate carnivores! We do eat a little less meat than before to compensate for the cost. Good luck with the potatoes, I should be harvesting in a month or so and will have pics of what's inside the cages posted.
