Buckeyes on the move

Although it's only mid-October, it's time to think about where the Buckeyes will be spending the Winter.  To make it easier to get to them and the Americaunas in Chickenland, the tractor has been moved to be closer to the back gate.  On the one hand, when the snow is blowing, this will make it easier to take care of everyone at once.  On the other hand, because the chicken door now faces the main house's back yard, a whole new world has openned up to Bucky and company.
Just because a closed gate is between the tractor and the backyard, doesn't mean one can't squeeze under it.  From there, all bets are off.  There's a few remaining blackberries on the wild brambles.  There are grapes that haven't been harvested.  There are bugs, lots of bugs, hiding down in the nice thick lawn.
Oh, yes.  Did I mention that the old chick house had been repurposed for a dog house?
Bucky and Rudy make sure the girls are safe, keeping an eye out for curious puppies or strangers.
It's going to be interesting to see if everyone goes back to tractor at the end of the day, or if the pup will have room mates this evening...
looks like it's been repainted.  wow! it's really clean in there!  Are you sure this is our old place?  I don't remember there being a porch.  shouldn't there be hay in here?  It kinda smells like puppy...
