    I was working from home today when I got a knock at my door.

    It was my neighbor.

    "Um... your chickens are out."


    Yeah, I guess they are!

    My girls are getting more and more crafty and are escaping my fenced in yard. I've clipped wings, put in more fencing, etc. They are just determined to get out of the back yard and walk all the way around the house so they can head down the street. As you can see I'm in a pretty busy neighborhood with neighbors, cars, and dogs.

    Looks like it's time for yet another fence line walk about. Depending on how high your fence is, they still could be flying over even with a wing clipped. And I've had some climb in bushes along the fence or on garbage cans and then hop over the fence. Such fun.

    When I first got Obelisk, she and Jerry would fly over the fence and eat the neighbour's grass seed. So I wound up going to Building 19 and snapping up all of the replacement volleyball netting I could get...It worked, just that other 2 feet helped keep them in.
