This evening my husband and I headed outside to set up a dog crate for the younger girls. We found our three older girls had slipped under the chicken yard fence and were happily munching on our potted plants. Additionally, they had gotten into our freshly mulched tree rings and had scratched and thrown the mulch all over the garden gravel. Hey, at least one of them was kind enough to leave a fertilizer deposit. This all in the five minutes since I'd been outside the last time. Chickens are crafty little suckers! Going to work on securing the fence this morning.
