The girls LOVE watermelon! We have really had fun bringing them a watermelon treat almost daily this summer!

We have started letting them out to roam while we are able to supervise them. We have too many hawks and fox for them to free range as much as I would like. So we settle for supervised free ranging. We LOVE watching them explore!

Our daughter continues to be the biggest fan of the chickens, especially her favorite – Freckles.

Our dog, Baxter loves to visit the chickens too. He’s a bit too rambunctious to be able to play with them in the yard, but he visits them through the gate!
