We have put them into their new home down by the garden. We're not quite finished with the fencing and such but here's a quick peek at what we're doing.
It's so much better to have them all down here, closer to the house and garden. Now I let them roam around inside the garden pecking at all the bugs. Although they thoroughly enjoyed digging up the new planted peppers and chili I have, so I had to install a wire barrier around all the planter boxes.
Unfortunately for me, I was up in the main box the other day and completely forgot about the near invisible wire running ten inches above where the box used to end...and KABOOM! I went flying!
I laid on the ground, mere inches from knocking the daylights out of me on the edge of the planter box...thank god I twisted at the right moment...however, that left the full weight of my fall to land on my palm and knee, twisting to my hip. I seriously didn't move for a whole minute, then without warning, the tears just streamed down my face as I laid in the wood chips and dirt sobbing....geez!
So ripped pants and raw skinned knees and an upper arm I can't even use, and it's been two days now...but the good news is I missed bashing my head in on that four by four post...so there you have it!
Dolce and Vida are happy as can be sharing their new quarters with the Ester, Lester, and Spot. They swim and splash around in the little baby pool like...well, like two ducks in water. The bushes add a nice piece of shade, and the other day I came out and they were all just hunkered down in the dry leaves under the salvia bushes...it was the most serene and happy I've seen then yet.
Hope that makes for good tasting eggs!
