Chickens Are Funny
I may put a mirror outside and see if they are interested in looking at their beautiful selves. I have seen dogs and cats show interest--curiosity and fear--in mirrors and their reflections in other objects, but never chickens.
Exbf was here, helping me. He said that Lucy was standing on the rock facing/ledge. This is not a ledge that is so high that it would be of interest in surveying their domain. I would love to know what chickens think.
By the way
The pine straw (dried fallen pine needles) keeps them from sitting in poop after the first night. It also makes cleaning the top easier. The brick is because the whole thing kept blowing over. Exbf thought the brick would help. He puts so much fresh pine straw in their nest that sometimes I find an egg sort of buried.
Have you ever had chickens that showed an interest at looking in anything that reflected their images? Do you think the dark basement and no white curtain made it where they could see their reflection?
