March Of The Free Range Chicks

Just the opposite. They’ve developed a foraging method that’s so precise and methodical it’s a little bit scary.

They start in the same place every day, follow the same path around the Hopyard, and wind up in the same place at night. They really know what they’re doing.

Every day, the Free Range Chicks search for bugs and worms starts down by the Willamette River. This is their favorite gathering spot.

They spend the morning slowly scratching and pecking their way back to the Hop 'N' Bed and take a break on the porch about Noon.

Then it's back to foraging, winding around the Farmstead Brewery, past the Hop 'N' Bed again and down towards the river.
