Nobody here but us chickens

We found these chickens early on. There was a sign saying we were welcome to feed them food scraps, or scratch, which was for sale at the museum.

We bought a couple of small bags of scratch later on.

There were a couple of slots in the chicken wire where you could stick a hand through to let the chickens feed straight from your hand, but Anders didn't want to try that. Soren (back and to the right) didn't participate at all.

Dorian and Anders really liked the big rocks that were just beyond the chicken coop. These big chunks of limestone are remnants of the hydraulic mining that was used for large-scale gold mining.

Here's a waterway near the big rocks.

I didn't realize it at the time, but suspect this sort of sluice was used for gold mining during the Gold Rush.
