But oh, aren’t they cute? Our friend Liz had chickens roaming free on her property (they all have the option of sleeping in the luxurious coop, which includes a solar-powered chicken door that opens and closes automatically at sunrise and sunset), but many of them choose to sleep al fresco. They recently had chicks–there appear to be two moms taking care of about eight chicks–and they are totally wild, running around all day. Scott managed to scoop one up for a photo, but the little darling did not like being held by a human. So unlike our very domestic, bathtub-raised chicks!
