Escaped Chickens

Those birdies are perched on the front gate between the area near our house where I have them temporarily and the front yard (note the protective dog in the back ground. Good girl Lily!).

Because their new house doesn't have wheels on it yet, I haven't moved them to the back half of the property where they'll rotate to new pasture every few days (note #2 - my very stupid dog has gotten immovably tangled in the pasture fence twice this month - the second time because she really wanted a piece of raw sweet potato I gave the birds).

So, they discovered that not only can they walk through some sections of the fence that I installed upside-down (large holes on the bottom and big ones at the top)...

...but they can also fly off their nice perch on the gate and escape into the front yard.

And as long as they continue to eat the yummy spring grasses and don't run out into the street I'm fine with it.


  1. Sometimes the bugs are greener on the other side of the fence!

  2. Great pics. Wish the grass was that green here in Oklahoma.
