If you have chickens, you likely have a chicken run. Or maybe you’ve seen the movie:
Well, around here it’s Chicken Walk:
All of our chickens were raised by hand, growing up in a corner of our kitchen from the time they were 2 days old until they were ready to move out to the coop. They all like to be held and scratched at the nape of the neck, but none of them more than Marigold the Buff Orpington. If you are in the coop, paying attention to another hen or doing anything other than holding Marigold and carrying her around, she will peck your leg until you pick her up. So now whenever Claire goes for walks around the neighborhood, she scoops Marigold up and carries her along. Marigold loves it, cars slow for a closer look, people point, and many stop to chat. Marigold has become an ambassador for the community backyard chicken movement.
