A short entry today.
The chickens are definitely early birds. Ron let them out a little after 5:30 this morning versus the usual 5:20. And they were not happy about it! Normally, most of them are still up on the roost and only starting to think about coming down. Instead, this morning all of them–even the Little Girls (Annie, Emma, and White Tail)–were already up and wandering around the floor of the coop. They were also yammering about going outside (presumably).
Yes, definitely early birds.
