Field Trip

While re-potting some seedlings, I thought I would bring the girls out for their first back yard experience. I had a wheelbarrow full of rich earth, full of worms. I put some garden fencing around and put Satsuki and Mei in first.
They were too excited about being out in the open to notice the worms and bugs. They started chirping a new song I haven't heard before, nervous and excited.

Satsuki caught on briefly but they both started to look for a way out of the wheelbarrow. I quickly scooped them up and put them back in the brooder. They must have communicated all of this to the other girls because Saffron immediately made a run for it. So, no cute pictures. But everyone had a worm treat.

Tomorrow, we start on the coop!
