It seems that the chickens didn't appreciate us leaving them for the weekend and were looking for trouble on Tuesday afternoon! We know we have some holes in the fence but they had not bothered to stray - until they did! Looking out of the window we could only see two.....and then the other eight in a neighbours garden helping themselves to the plants and flowers!
We got all of them back and Ted blocked up the gap in the fence - it must have looked strange when the family were walking down the road with one or two chickens each under their arms! Some left-over potatoes kept them busy while Ted was finding a plank for the fence!
