One of the things that Jackson has learned to enjoy since coming to stay is letting the hens out each afternoon for a bit of freedom.
He likes to have the honour of opening the door to the coop himself and enjoys the antics that follow.
Yesterday I found him sitting on the bank quietly watching them digging and scratching and doing what hens do.
He likes to do that but he also enjoys being able to coax the hens back into the coop after they have had their fun. Throwing them some wheat as part of the whole process is an activity he likes to participate in as well.
