What did we do?
What did we do?

We were let out of the coop promptly at 6 a.m. and went to the usual spots in the yard to see what we could find. Human was busy with a hammer and stakes but we thought nothing of it as she is always doing something in the yard.

Imagine our horror when she shooed us behind a newly erected fence! Now our yard has been reduced to a bit of dry earth just north of the coop. Not much to eat and only a garden cart for shade.

Notice the rosemary plant in the background?

As we watched Human puttering in the yard it became clear what fencing us in was for...she planted a new lawn and does not want us eating all the seeds. Harrumph! All that seed and we are trapped behind a 2' fence.

 Chicken Fact:
The so called "urban hen movement" harks back to the days when Chicken keeping was much more common, and involves the keeping of small groups of hens in areas where they may not be expected, such as closely populated cities and suburban areas.

Well, I know that once the lawn grows in we will be released to graze. It will be a long 2 weeks though!
