The Chickens Are Grounded (Again)

Today while we went to Mass the chickens escaped from their pen area and managed to eat all the sprouting corn plants and some sweet potato vines.

They knew they had been bad when I went out there to grab them and put them back in their pen, and Lobelia was especially bad, making me give chase in order to catch her.

This escapade is in addition to their morning-crowing that threatens to wake up the neighbors, which they have cleverly learned gets me up out of bed to give them scratch to eat so that they will pipe down.

Oh well, at least they are giving us 2 excellent eggs each day!
