Hen scratch

Seattle Tilth, the organization that taught me about chickens, wants my straw/chicken-poop mixture! They need it for an advanced class in composting.

Letting the hens out to run around close to sunset is a good idea; they don’t stray as far and getting them back in the coop is much easier.

Several neighbors have come over to see the setup. Chickens are a real draw for people. Could it be that our historical relationship with chickens is now in our genes, similar to dogs?

Today the girls should use the last of the feed that came with the chickens. I’m anxious to try the new feed.

I watched the hens go up and down the ramp. I have to add some traction; it’s more like a theme-park ride at this point.
