Chickens Out and About

Over the last few weekends I've been letting a few chickens out of their pen to wander around the yard. At first I only let a couple out, but this past weekend I let all of them out at once. I'm happy to say that everyone was very well behaved and also very easy to return to the chicken run (using food as a bribe, of course).

My city doesn't allow urban chicken keepers to let their chickens free-range, but I doubt I'm going to get in trouble for letting them out for an hour or so.

They had a great time scratching around the garden, eating weeds (and my fall lettuce), and exploring.
