    This afternoon some of my girls escaped( jumped the fence) into my neighbors yard which has a huge fig tree. A lot of figs were the ground and had fermented. I noticed that they were acting a bit odd when I retrieved them. Getting an animal drunk is not funny but these did it to themselves, I just hope that they will be alright in the morning.
    Has this ever happened to any one else?

    oh my, well like wolfwoman said, if theyre ok, then its funny! cnat say this has ever happened to me, although i did see a drunk squruil on youtube once it was hilarious, lots of animals get drunk cause they eat fermented fruit and stuff and so become "drunk", theyre usually ok though, its natures own bar... lol [​IMG] but that squrel was so funny, it was running circles, falling of the tree (ran around trunk, near base, and kept falling), etc, it was so funny, ill have to see if i can find the link cause it was hilarious! lol [​IMG]

    I'll bet they'll be just fine. My chickens live to clean up the fermented figs. I don't think I saw them move more than 50 ft. away from our fig trees today; just hoping that another one might fall.

    They should be OK, but, I'd hate to see the run tomorrow, because that poop is going to be ugly.[​IMG]
