Ever since we got six chickens last Winter, the backyard hasn’t been quite the same.
The girls arrived last March and for the first week or two, we raised them inside our dining room. The girls quickly grew and, to their enjoyment, got to roam the backyard eating bugs, grass and almost anything they could get their beaks on. Much to our dismay, they frequently raided the garden and stole tomatoes, lifting them away before we could stop them with their beaks. Then, once out of the garden, they fought over the tomato by stealing it out of each others mouths.
