I have had *the* worst time lately with chickens in my garden. We have a fence. A 6' fence. But it is no barrier for this particular mother hen and her chicks. I transplanted some corn seedlings today and at every turn I took (snacks, potty breaks, naps, you name it for the kids) those DAMN chicks and hen were on my newly planted seedlings. ENOUGH ALREADY!!!!!!!!!
I caught her. Ohhhh the satisfaction. See that grin of mine?
I pulled out her wing....
And I clipped it! YES! I clipped it! She will no longer be flying over the fence to devour (all) of my carrots and onions and half of my new corn. OVER IT! OVER IT I TELL YOU!
