Thanks--they are the happiest chickens on the block (I think--). They are so happy to see grass again and go outside (not that they couldn't go out during the winter--they just didn't like getting their feet cold.) I was jealous that I had to be inside working while they were out gardening. I have them working on clearing the weeds along the fence line--they don't get fed inside when the weather is nice, they have to work for their fed. They are doing a nice job on clearing the thatch.

How are they with chickweed? We have a bumper crop this year.

I don't know about chickweed, but they are doing a great job on getting rid of the stinging nettles (itch weed). They love it.

We may need a chicken exchange program. We have plenty of nettles here too.

Are you sure those worms weren't elastics?

The neighbors across the street got a rooster. Seems he was killing the hens at his former home. They are calling him a rescue rooster. They are planning on getting hens too. I'm not sure how they will keep the rooster from killing their hens, but they say they are not worried. Maybe they are secretly rooster whisperers. ;) it is kind of fun having a rooster so close crowing away!

Offer him a home for a Sunday. Then get that pot ready.

I've never heard of roosters killing their hens...Cocky Rocky did attack me yesterday--the trick is to get down to his level. I guess being a "Big Chicken" threatens him. I was wearing a cotton sundress--he seems to have an issue when I change my silhouette.
