Chickens are fond of trees. The forest is a favorite place for them to find food and shelter. Can you spot the mother hen and her chicks in the picture below?
They also like hanging out on bridges. Maybe they are hoping a frog or field mouse will pass by below that they can nab. They also love vegetable rows, not so much for the greens, but for all the creatures that live in the ground. I added 50 feet of fencing to keep the hen and her chicks out of the fields. I have another 100 feet to go. Digging post holes and hanging fencing is great exercise. Why settle for a thirty minute or an hour workout in a gym when you can tone your muscles all day long building fences?
