Homebodies

I got sick of the Silkies staying in the greenhouse all day.  The door’s been open for ages, the other birds are going out the opposite door into the world at large, so the Silkies have a yard all to themselves with no big chickens in it, but do they ever go out the door?  No.  I expected more from the Colonel.So I herded them all out the door.  Screaming protests, flying over me.  Then once they were outside – Oh, this is ok.  Peck, peck.A half hour later they were all back inside.  So I herded them out again.  Go play outside!  Apparently they need acclimation training.
