My chickens are smart. Well, as smart as chickens can be. They have found the perfect spot in the yard to keep cool. Gertie and Gwenie are fun pets to have. They don't require much upkeep. We let them run around the yard and eat bugs and tender green things. Sometimes those tender green things are growing in my vegetable garden but they don't eat very much. They reward us with fresh, free-range brown eggs every day. In a future post, I'll show off my custom made portable chicken coop.
