Fun with chickens

Here is a clip of what the chickens do when they are first let out of the coop in the morning. Most step out on the ramp and then fly a few feet, as if to stretch their wings. Then they start bolting across the yard, most often to one of two walnut saplings that have sprung up from stumps. Although we intend to chop them down as soon as possible (you can't have walnut trees that close to the garden) they will remain until we move the chickens. They provide perfect cover for them to run to if threatened and they also love to perch on the low branches.
