Welcome to our series "Feathered Friend Friday." Every Friday I write a post with interesting facts, photos, or funny stories about our chickens and guineas. If you need to catch up, you'll find all the Feathered Friend Friday posts here.
Every once in a while when I have some free time in the evening, I like to let the chickens and Duchess out to free range. The chickens go wild pecking at greens and bugs and Duchess gobbles up bushes and leaves (crazy dog).
Earlier this week I could tell they were all itching to get out of the run. Ethel was giving me the stink eye just waiting to be set free.
So I obliged, and let everyone out to stretch their wings.
Duchess had fun chomping on a pile of limbs from a tree we cut down.
I wish I could let them roam our property freely all day long, but I want them to be safe. They have a pretty big run so they are happy, but love it when they are let out to explore. Just like humans, animals like a change of pace every once in a while. It's good to mix things up every now and then!
