Poultry Pest Patrol!

Hey, what's that fluffy thing in the garden?

The ladies' coop, run, and pen needed a good cleaning. It's really difficult when they're in there, because they are both curious about your shovel, and afraid of it. So today we decided to let them loose in the portable pen around a garden bed. It took them a little while to get the hang of things. At first, they were pecking at the old tires we planted potatoes in. But they they realized the joys to be found in the garden bed itself!

Shade, leaves, and tons of live grub! I hope they are eating all the earwigs that are messing with my corn and leaving lady bugs and spiders alone, but I know that's not how it really works.
