With the garden pasture complete I can now easily lock the big chickens out of the fruit pasture. Which means I can let the chicks out to explore without worrying about them being harassed. I won’t be integrating the flocks for many weeks yet but this gives yet another opportunity for the flocks to safely see each other.
The first out was the barred rock. She wasted no time leaving the run and coming to see what I was doing.

A few pecks on the ground...
And everybody came running.
A very successful first excursion.
