Now that Minnie and Tasha are gone (the Berkshire pigs who ate the ducks and chickens), the chickens can range freely in the former pen where the pigs last were and glean the barley from the ground, without fear of being eaten. The lambs do no mind at all having the Ameraucanas visit. The chickens actually sit right on the lambs from time to time. I suppose with the weather a little cooler, the feel of a warm wooly coat under the toes is more comforting than the dirty ground. At least I would think so if I was a chicken. The other chickens, the bantams, do not intermingle with the Ameraucanas, but they soon will have to because it is getting too cold to roost in the trees. The Guinea fowl have take to tree sleeping too, so they will have to be taken down. Anyhow, isn't it lovely, the lambs and hens and roosters, together just relaxing? Yeah!
