Chicken Update: Day 90

It’s 104 degrees outside today. Lee put up the electrified netting as a temporary fence around the chicken house so they wouldn’t overheat inside. One Barred Rock and two Rhode Island Reds were the bravest of the bunch and ventured out. Mostly they were all really freaked out of their little minds.

Everyone seems to be doing fine. They are all still growing good and are going though their water and feed more quickly. The Barred Rocks and the Rhode Island Reds are extremely friendly. The only really spooky chicken we have is Elwood the Araucana. Why I don’t know, as her Araucana pal Jake is nothing like her. Maybe poor Elwood is just not a bright one and has separation anxiety from her hatched shell. The world seems to be a little too much for poor Elwood.

    I will have to see if more of them get out of the coop today. I think only a few ventured out yesterday before popping back into the chicken coop.
