The saga of the stupid Buff Orpintons continues.....but with a happy report!
For the FIRST time, ALL of my chickens put themselves back inside the coop at sunset yesterday evening!!! This is MAJOR progress as I would go out to the coop and find 6-8 of my girls preparing to spend the night outside, while everyone else had gone in......like “regular” chickens. I'd have to pick them up, set them at the bottom of the ramp, and make them walk up it and inside the coop. Stupid birds. ….Well, finally, they all went in by themselves and all I had to do was close and lock the door!!! I did the “happy chicken dance” last night to celebrate!
…..It's the little things in life that can make your day. ;-)
