Foiled again. Stopped at the door before she could escape.
I think our chickens have been watching "Chicken Run" and planning their escape a.s.a.p.
So far we've stopped every attempt but one may succeed tomorrow.
Mary checks to make sure they are not crowding the door before going in. Once the door is open they make a rush all at once, everyone for herself, all trying the escape. They are persistent.
But once the treat bowl is on the ground they forget about escaping and devour the treats as quickly as possible. Everyone for herself and if one finds a tasty treat they will chase her until she shares. These girls don't follow any rules.
Time to sit on the porch and watch the colours change.
We are two retired Canadians who have just moved into our off grid passive solar home. This is all new to us and we are surprised at how comfortable the house is regardless of the temperature outside. When not home we are usually travelling in our Airstream trailer exploring North America and meeting like minded people.
Mary loves to quilt and Art enjoys photography. We both enjoy camping, hiking, canoeing, travelling and cross-country skiing.
Come along with us and share our adventures as we settle into this new life off the electrical grid.
