Déjeuner sur l'Herbe (Free Range Chickens)

Justin and Claui's laying flock are really enjoying themselves. Look at that little banty wading in the water.

 The area beneath the willow tree is like a chicken playground.

They'll go back to their chicken house at dusk, to be closed up safe from predators -- reasonably safe at least.

The banty, believe it or not, is the mother of a couple of these hens -- but I don't think they remember. (They never write; they never call . . .)

I don't remember ever seeing chickens playing in the water like this.

Lucky biddies!

My daughter is just getting into chickens and her brother built her a nice coop for them. I hope hers like water, since the rains have been a huge issue here. She might need to change to ducks.

I don't know why, but this is a feel good post. What is it about chickens?

Brings to mind that old song "Home, home one the range where the deer and the chickens roam". Well almost.

Vicki, what fun it is to see chickens splish splashing around. Staying cool in the summertime.

Happy weekend to you and yours. xo
