What a week it has been with these girls. They sucked me in with their soft clucks and pretty eggs…and I let them get away with way too much.
Yes, I’m talking about you!
They loved taking sun baths against the warm under-construction wall of the new greenhouse.
They came and pecked at my garden boots…only to discover that the flowers tasted like rubber.
Now here’s where the girls got my dander up. But it’s my silly fault…
I put out some kale seedlings to get some sun/shade…
and left them outside while we had dinner. And I returned to find half of the kale pecked to bits like grasshoppers had visited! ARGH! Sometimes I just forget that they’re chickens and that they’ll eat anything…
like my garden beds…this should be full of Austrian pea leaves…but they’ve scratched and pecked it all.
You girls are just like deer. I’ve gotta remember that from now on! The garden is off limits next week. Uh…I guess I mean tomorrow.
