Oh My Goodness! by JocelyneR Oh My Goodness! by JocelyneR
This hen... I jumped up when she came on the table near my chair!
Omg, six laying hens have invaded my backyard during two months! They were having to go through 300 M of forest before arriving but they were coming as soon as they were hearing my voice. Despite all the predators...
The issue is that they have ruined my flowerbeds, eating petals, leaves, then scratching the soil, destroying roots. One has been killed and my neighbor finally changed the location after coyotes have killed his young turkeys.

Can you buy fresh eggs from these free-range chicken farmers??

:iconjocelyner:
JocelyneR Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2012
Hehe! These hens came in during two long months! The were very beautiful indeed but the farmer was careless and he lost some of them, killed by predators.
He gave me a dozen of fresh eggs. I love eggs but I have been unable to eat those eggs, don't ask me why! :D :giggle:

Thank you so much, Jacqueline! :heart:

J'ai eu le temps de les observer (je ne connais rien aux animaux de ferme) et elles sont plus intelligentes (clever) qu'on ne le croit. Et très débrouillardes...
Merci beaucoup! :glomp:

Hens can be very harmful to plants. Every summer we have to shoo them from the kitchen garden in the village. :)
