The Squadron of the Flying Chickens – Adventures in Urban Homesteading – Raising Chickens for Eggs

My friends who raise chickens had the permission of their neighbors to put their chickens into their yard for some pecking. They put a ladder up to see if the chickens might return using it. These two never made it to the other side. Having been perched at the top of the ladder, they turned around and, er, “flew” back to their own yard. Clearly they are not accustomed to nor built for such adventures!

  1. That is so funny the chicken climbing the ladder! What a great idea. They will get it in the end but watch out because they will fly over very easily when they get the hang of it and the neighbours will have frequent visitors.. awesome. i love it when i read about people having their own chooks.. c

    • Hi, Cecilia. I don’t think they ultimately did manage the ladder, but they propped up the fence in the end from the bottom, so the chickens could come and go as they pleased. It is amazing how thick that one chicken is on the bottom.
