First I carried my companion chicken (Apples) to the first garden for a while, but not too long, on account of the bugs. She strode right off across the garden and found a shady spot to scratch in the path. I wa sexpecting slightly more reaction, since I’ve never carried her so far from home, but she’s just relaxed about everything.
Then I carried her back, we did some potting up, then finished the day at the second garden, where I was transplanting lettuces. It was perfect, giving her a little socialization, without stress. She was on one side of the fence, and the roosters were making fools of themselves on the other. Everybody had to come around and take a look at the new girl. We’ll do it all again tomorrow.
