Happy shady chickens

IMGP7209
Clearly a cooler atmosphere is what the hairy little Silkies were missing in life.  They now have shade or dappled sunlight most of the day, and they are obviously very happy.  It’s nice and cool where they are, right into the hot afternoon.  They get much more privacy now too, farther from our work zones (nearer camper).  It’s fun to go check on them, see what they’re up to at various times, just doing their chicken thing.  They don’t work very hard.  Graze a little, writhe a little in the dust.  High-stepping adventuring around, just a few feet from the coop.  Lots of dozy low nestling in various places, making for a Where’s Waldo chicken hunt in the grass, for little tufty heads.  They have nearly zero impact on their surroundings, being so small.  They hardly eat any feed when they eat veg all day.  Low cost.  Very low maintenance.  And low compensation.  So they better be low cost, the little freeloaders.
