Flew the Coop

This is my last chicken post for a while.  Today I officially opened the coop into the new run.  The chickens just stood at the door looking out for about 15 minutes until one finally got the courage to hop out.  Once one jumped down the rest came piling out.  They loved it out there and when it started to get dark they all piled back into the coop.  Tomorrow I put a solar panel on their roof to power a light and an electric poultry fence which I will be putting completely around the coop and run then extending out into the yard.  This will give them extra room to roam around when I am here to watch plus it will create another layer of defense against predators.
