Ya know . . . new chicken stuff

Pot Pie in lock down.

Salad Sandwich with her new nose job.

Noodle Soup free ranging.

Pot Pie kickin' it old school.

So over the weekend we had a traumatic experience with the girls. A visiting dog got a little excited right up against the run and freaked the girls the eff out.
Somehow Salad Sandwich and Noodle Soup ended up breaking the tips of their beaks off. I'm not sure how it exactly happened--We're just talking about 1/8-1/4 of an inch here--They should grow back. In the mean time eating has been a little sore for them. They've been getting back up to speed, but Saturday was rough for all of us.
So no more new dogs in the backyard.
And they seem happy--chickens are pretty stupid, which helps in situations like this.

On other fronts I ran power out to the coop and rigged up the lights and the timer--we're ready for winter!

See the glow!

Late nite dining.

Fake egg in the nest box there--Noodle Soup is sporadically laying, the others seem close . . .
