Chicken Escape…and the Destruction that Ensued.

Apr 17, 2009

So when I got home last night and looked out the back kitchen window to check on the chickens I noticed they weren't in the downstairs section of their "ark"...it seemed strange given the time of day that they would have gone back up to roost. So then I walk out into the backyard and what do you know? There the are running around...GREAT. The handle to one of the doors must not have been secured and they busted out. Must have had a nice long leisurely day in the garden! LOL. Then, the first moments of panic..."oh crap, what did they destroy....". Overall, not too bad. They did manage to get into the strawberry patch and do some serious digging around the protective cages but I think the plants will be fine. The only other thing they really destroyed, FOR THE SECOND TIME, were the spinach seedlings Julie gave me. Ok, these were the spinach seedling transplants...at least this is what they looked like a few weeks ago before the first chicken attack...they made it through that one...but now, sadly, they no longer exist. Goodbye spinach. I'll miss you.
