Kim and I have made the decision; time to fence in the "girls". At least for the time being. They are scratch, scratch, scratching away at EVERYTHING in the back garden. Most of the time they seem to be in a scratching frenzy.
Crazily scratching and digging and eating everything in sight.
So, Kim bought a piece of fencing at good ol' Home Depot. And then he put it up.
They were not happy chickens. Not so much. They patrolled the border, they eyed it up and down, they squawked. And then they gave up and pecked and scratched away at what we'd left them.
Later we'll put up permanent fencing around the veg garden, and then some temp fencing around some delicate plants. But first we'll allow the garden plants to get a head start on the chickens and see how things go after that.
Wish us luck!
