SheepLadder

Georgia is using Chevy as a step ladder to get up to the roost. Chickens are not good flyers. Their roost is higher than they can hop/fly to in one shot. (I made it that way on purpose so they will be safer from any predators that might get into the barn at night.) I made a little ladder for them to use. Sometimes they use the partition on the end of the pen. My favorite move, though, is when a sheep is standing close enough and they hop/fly to the sheep’s back and from there to the roost. The sheep don’t seem to mind. In fact, I think the hens’ long, pointy toes penetrate the sheep’s thick wool to help scratch their backs. Sheep LOVE back scratches. Some of them can be quite demanding for me to scratch their backs. I just find it so funny to see them getting scratches from chickens. And the chickens treating them like convenient footstools.
