DH says that Rhode Island Reds love high places.
Observing our little ones grow up, I’ve had plenty of chances to prove this true. Even as day-olds, they loved to jump and try to fly. The first night they spent in the ‘big coop’ several of the little Red hens made it up into the rafters and they’ve been sleeping there at night ever since.
Sunday night, I took these pictures… because, this time, not only were the Red hens up in the rafters, so was one of the Gold hens.
The rest of the Reds welcomed her by making room and snuggling in for the night. I wonder if she will make a nightly habit of it, or if her other two sisters will notice and join her?
