Moving Day for Chickens

Phase one of the chicken coop move is in progress. I cleaned out the center of my large raised- bed garden space and lifted my movable coop inside--with the assistance of the elder son. Let me tell you, the baawking, humming, and stretched necks had me laughing for an hour. These four will have enough to chatter about for the next few days.

By mid-afternoon, they were so busy they barely noticed me working around area. I didn't realize how happy chickens are to play in the dirt. Peck, peck, peck, scratch, scratch, scratch and I have a wonderfully tilled center in my garden. If I'd have known what a great advantage they'd be to keeping a garden in order, I'd have done this long ago. No waste. All the extra green stuff goes into the coop and is either consumed or buried.

But their journey is about change again. The blue Tupperware tub is about to make a permanent departure. Watch for phase two the dog house conversion.
