What does a typical day look like for your flock?

Looking forward to the replies. I will add mine later. :-D

There is a nice soft section of earth along the fence line. In the late afternoon before the hens return to the coop a row of girls can be seen stretched out in the sun and dust bathing. I swear - the sounds they make and the row of them there - it reminds me of ladies at the beauty salon!! ;-)

A day in the life of my flock includes lots of love, cuddles and snuggles, lots of food including some kind of treat and fun in the garden :-D

mine wait impatiently to get let out in the morning spend the day sunbathing, scratching, duck through the fence to the irresistible temptation of horse poop to scratch through for a treat, as the shadows lengthen they make their way home and shuffle for prime perch position.....pretty good life here

Mine are definitely part of a religious cult. They are always ready to welcome the bearer of good food and treats that seem to magically appear each morning and evening. And, if they are behaving themselves, are allowed out to free range for an afternoon. Hail the bearer of Cargo :thumbs:
