Suspicious Chickens

The chicken feeder fell apart and had to be replaced.  The one I bought is a bit different -- I'm hoping that it will last longer than the last two metal ones.
I hung the feeder and filled it.

The girls watched suspiciously from the other end of the pen.

It took quite awhile for them to approach


and take the first few cautious pecks

The "all clear" signal was given and they all dove in.

  1. Aren't they just so funny? I love watching mine. I guess that's where they get the adjective "chicken" from--they're scared of everything! LOL

  7. LOL I love how suspicious chickens are. Too cute! Mine were raised with that kind so any time they see something red they come running/flying lol.
