They've been "cooped" up long enough!
With a bit of bare ground right outside their hen house door, I let them out for a time of scratching. Albie Darn I'm a Rooster, (above) sticks around so's he can keep an eye out for any intruders that might harm his precious harem!
The temps were in the low 30's, but they didn't seem to care. It has to be better than being stuck in an 8x8 with nothing to do. (except for Albie, he has plenty to keep him busy!)
