Guerilla Free Ranging

We all like our chickens to free range, eating lots of lovely greens and putting the good stuff in their eggs.  Our chicks are taking this to a new level and going guerilla.
You see the long grass moving and then shaking violently until finally a chicken bursts forth from the undergrowth.  It was a bit off putting the first time, especially in snake country.

Then we found that one chick, Flopsy, had been taking matters in her own hands whilst free ranging
We found four eggs in there and they have only just reached point of lay.  She seemed to have been crossing her legs all morning until we let them out onto the lawn and swales in the afternoon.
