    I was working at home and heard repeated hawk screeches outside. So, I put my work down and went out to check on the girls who were free ranging. I did not see any of them at first then I spotted them over in the cherry orchard. I walked over and only counted 6 (I have 9). I found one in a nest but I could not find Antonia Banderas and Bobbi. I started walking the property. I did not see them after 5 min and I decided to go back to work. There are plenty of places for them to blend in and I was not panicking yet. A few minutes later I heard the hawk again and went outside. I still did not see the 2 girls. I was back at the door and turned around and finally spotted the 2 missing girls. I had walked by them about 5 times! They were in the plant containers that used to have my blueberry plants.




  2. Oh my I bet that was fright for you and your girls.

    In the first picture the one hen looks like she is leaning with her back against the flower pot and is sunbathing! Too funny!

    My DH just pointed out that the first picture is representative of the state of our economy. There is NOT a chicken in every pot. [​IMG]

    tfpets Mmm, tastes like chicken

    When I let my chickens loose in my yard, I had planters like that. I gave up trying to plant in them! When I finally had to keep my girls in a more secure area for their safety, I moved a couple of planters in with them! Yup, Spa treatment!
