The girls are 8 weeks now.
They are becoming more and more adventurous.
Every day they come out of the coop, they stray further and further.
Yesterday we couldn't find them! They were out in the orchard, buried in tall grass under one of the trees.
They are quite to particular compost'ers too!
They don't like pineapple and they pick the chard leaves off the stem. No stems for these ladies.
But berries, oh berries, they'll take those any day of course!
We are at the halfway point, I hope, until they start laying eggs. Maybe a tad longer than halfway depending on how soon they decide to do so. As I understand it, they can start laying anywhere between 16-20 weeks of age.
What's that old saying?
'Birds of a feather flock together'
