Pushing The Boundaries

My chickens are going further and further into the woods. Actually, they are pushing the boundaries pretty much in every direction. A couple of weeks ago, they not only crossed the road but went further down the road than they have been before. At least they were in the ditch.

Maybe, its because they are thinking surely there are some bugs or something somewhere. We have had a colder than normal winter than we have had in quite a long time. It's getting spring; gotta spread out.
Well, today was wonderful. So, this afternoon while I was checking on the chickens, I decided to take the dogs for a trek through the woods. We had a really good time.

Chili and Sissy were ready to go. Not Skylar, she is waiting with the Frisbee back at the edge of the woods.

Do you see Chili? She in under the bank and ferns.

There she is. Off we go again. More to see.

Up we go; see what is going on up here.

Okay, here she comes. She gave it her best shot to wait for us but saw this could take a while.

She decided she would get in the lead. Frisbee forgot for a short while, we are into the this now. We had a good walk and lots of fun. I took enough pictures to post for weeks; I won't do that to you. Not weeks anyway, but tomorrow I have some cute ones to post. Walking through the woods with just a short sleeve tee shirt and no mosquitoes. Did I say wonderful?

Oh we love the warm weather too. You have such a nice place to go for a walk. Water and trees. What more do you need?
Have a great weekend..

A walk through the woods checking out the chickens sounds glorious! Hope lots of fun was had by all! You must not have any coyote problems down your way. Our neighbour has chickens and they need an outside guard dog. Their first dog died and they didn't get a new one for a couple of weeks. During those weeks, the coyotes were seen patrolling the edge of their fields.

Beautiful place you have!

That looks like so much fun and no mosquitos would make the day that much better. Great photos!
