    Okay well let the girls and the roo's out to trim the bug population. Well about an hour later I went over to the barn area and decided to pick some ripe black berries for cobbler tonight.

    Well nothing thinking about it here came one roo and 2 hens lol. They decided they wanted to help. Now they won't leave the berries alone lol. Anything from about 2ft or lowers is not going to be chicken food they were going nuts.

    So don't pick berries with the birds free ranging. Haha less cobbler for me.

    Any grapes my RIR rooster sees me picking he must have. He won't bother them unless I'm holding them [​IMG]

    Don't dig holes either unless you want a shovel full of chicken. [​IMG]
