Runaway Chickens

Why do my chickens always try to escape their run?  They have a large roomy run complete with apple trees, grass, dust bath, compost pile and duck pond.  I’m even in the process of building a chicken swing for them. Still they dig along the fence line, they push on the gate, they try to squeeze out any opening they can find.  I found one chicken, Apple, laying eggs near the woodpile. She was guarding close to a dozen eggs.  Another chicken, Clair, has a taste for the leeks in my garden.  Pearl prefers the watermelon patch and Juniper loves hiding under the pine trees, go figure.  They all end up standing at the back patio door – looking in.  A true sign our chickens are pets.  They really just want in the house with us.

Abuse is an unfortunate reality in this world and is more than physical assault. The invisible trauma we suffer can result in chronic illness, which is a relentless beast gnawing away at the soundness of mind. Education and support from others are vital in the healing journey.
