    I put Mr. Recovering Petey and his surviving girlfriend outside an hour ago because the guys are going to have Band practice and I figured the noise would stress him out. What a good opportunity to eat dinner on the back porch and keep an eye on things, right?
    Wrong! Five big nosey beaks fighting for my dinner plate!
    Go away! Go away!
    I was literally having to shoo birds of my shoulder, arm of the chair, legs... Yeeesh! I thought Elvis was a mooch!
    I feel like one of those crazy pigeon ladies I used to see in downtown L.A. all the time.

    We had the same thing tonight! We were eating sushi & wine on the back deck and had our Polish and one of the EE's up investigating what was on the menu. Then another EE jumped up and knocked over my husband's wine. The dog enjoyed that. At least the dog doesn't jump on the table like the girls do.

    They sound like fun
    Have you been to those places in europe where you can feed pigeons in their hundreds? One euro for a bag of corn, and away you go

    Chickens, I imagine, are heavier though [​IMG]

    We like to sit outside with a beer and some shelled peanuts. But the girls are at our feet, pecking at our feet every few seconds. But we've tossed them a few peanuts and they don't want those. But they look at us like, if you're going to eat, we should have something to eat too.

    We don't even dare to eat outside. We have birds of a different feather (mosquitoes) that would ruin our dinner. So I think that I will take fighting off the yapping dogs at the table instead.
