The ‘girls’ are currently confined to the night pen after escaping to the neighbours on Tuesday. Spending 30 minutes chasing 4 reluctant hens is not my idea of excitement but it is excellent exercise.
Meanwhile they have also polished off all the seedlings under the mulberry tree, dug holes in the herb garden and started pruning the pea bushes.
They also sit on top of the gate to the back area and I swear laugh at me! So wings have been clipped and they have been confined for a few days until I figure out how to keep them in the back yard. More wire maybe?
Bad bad Girls!
Friday – the clipped wings have not stopped them! Today they ate the best part of the only ripe pepino in the herb garden and dug another hole. The wire will have to be extended!
