The girls survived their first tractor move over the weekend. There was some drama and clucking involved involved but in the end all ended well. So to reward them for their bravery during the exercise I came out with some potato peels from some baked potatoes from dinner the night before. As usual they started to crowd the door of the run when they saw me sit down like I do when it is treat time. Some of the more adventurous ones will venture out close to me to get the peels before running back in while making the "I've got something please don't take it" sound. For one of the girls running back in didn't seem to be part of her ingenious plan. After jumping to grab the peel she hopped over my outstretched leg and took off into the yard. That, in and of itself, wasn't too bad. What added to the confusion was when 3 others saw her dart out with a treat and proceeded to follow her lead and make a dash for it. I caught #4 before she could get away but immediately had 3 very fast moving birds running around out in the yard. I walked after them and they rounded the tractor and hopped back inside but for a few minutes they had the taste of freedom. The only bad part of it was that my wife was inside and missed the entire spectacle.
