Jumping Chickens

Our buff chicks have grown so much over the last three months… they are almost the size of the Rhode islands. It is still fun to watch them copy the Rhode Islands and learn to eat new things. 3 buffsThey also have learned how to jump the fence…buffNot something I wanted them to learn so we are working to break them of… but don’t think we will have much luck. There are only a couple that do this.  We would hate to clip their wings in case they need to get up high on a perch or get away from predators… but going outside their fence and where the dog smell is not as strong puts them in danger. The predators for the most part stay away from the area we fenced off for the dogs and chickens to roam in. So we would like the chickens to stay in… we shall see 🙂
