Happy, Free-Ranging Chickens

As the weather warms, the grass greens, and the earthworms surface, the chickens return to their true love: hunting, scratching and pecking for food.

If given the choice of eating grain from the feeder or searching for bits of grain on the ground, they choose the search.

They're eating a lot less grain now that spring is here. And I'm finding them in the paddocks, pastures and even the garden.

Yesterday, they discovered that the raised bed is a perfect spot for dirt baths.

They'll get kicked out of the garden soon.
