My Girls must be entering the 'Teenage Unruly Phase'. I thought they loved me. I also thought my garden was chicken proof! It seems a neighbourhood cat has been in cahoots and shown them a gap in the fence! I bet that cat is plotting something, trying to lead them astray like that. It was a tiny gap in the fence and I did not witness the act! So maybe it went something like this?
They were in the neighbours garden being 'helpful'. They were digging up his parsnips! I had to go round and apologise. Then try to catch them. In my own garden they run towards me, overjoyed to see me but in the neighbours garden, oh no! They pretended they didn't know me! I nearly had to resort to this:
A phone call to the 'Chicken Police'! Euan found the hole escapade most distressing, I found it moderately anxiety inducing and Henry thought the whole thing was pretty funny! It cost me six eggs worth of apology and now I am watching those chickens like a Hawk!
