I was a worried chick mama when we let them out, but they really needed time out of the muddy run while I tried to fix it a bit. Since four of us were out there to keep an eye on them we decided to give it a shot. As soon as the run door was opened, they were out. I swear I heard Mel Gibson yelling, “Frrrreeeeddddooooommmm!” in my head as they made a mad dash for the opening.
Unfortunately, this morning when I let them out, I left them for 30 minutes to deal with small 2-legged ones. I looked out the kitchen window and there was 1 Rock in the yard. It took 15 minutes to track them down to the neighbor’s yard. The only reason I found them is because I was shaking a container of dried meal worms, which they love, and I saw which direction they came from.
This is not a good thing. Every neighbor has dogs. The one to our right is a new neighbor who has a large dog. I’ll need to put up something to keep them in our yard, so they don’t become someone’s dinner.
