My New BFF.....Coop Girl Betty

Do you remember when I shared with you a couple of weeks ago mine and Betty's evening routine?

Well, we are continuing our new tradition nightly.

Betty waits for me, longingly watching the back door of the house.

If she pops inside the coop to grab a bite to eat when I'm coming out, I call out her name and she comes running.

Sweetest BFF ever.

She paces and waits for me to get up to the coop.

We lock up the small door first to keep the others in.

Then, we head off to the garden shed where the nightly treats are kept.

A BIG bag of freeze-dried mealworms.

After she's had a handful.  Or two.  Or three.

Back to the coop we go where Betty finds her space on the roost and goes to bed.

A belly full and a smile on her beak.

I love this. I never knew the happiness I was missing in my life until I had a backyard flock. They are certainly one of God's most enjoyable creatures.

Yes, it started with a favorite chicken for me, too. Then the ducks wanted worms. Then the guinea keets. Then the baby turkeys. Now I'm buying the jumbo bag of worms, sigh... I've also stooped to buying live crickets down at the convenience store, very cheap in these parts. I really hate crickets a lot, so I very much enjoy watching them run for their little lives with their musical legs, only to be snatched up by a turkey. :)
