We planted some of our garden today. We planted bush beans and corn. Notice the nice contraption Hubby came up with? It's the best thing since sliced bread. No more bending down to plant. Just take funnel and some kind of pipe or stiff hose. Put them together and there you go. One of the best inventions in the world! Anyway, as we were planting, this happened.
The chickens had escaped their pens. We kept putting it off, but it's time to clip some wings.
We got the fishing net and went chicken fishin'.
We chased and chased, and we finally caught some.
Hubby caught them and brought them to me. I got them out of the net,held the wings out, and Hubby clipped their wings. It was so funny watching them try to fly over the fence once their wings were clipped. I tried and tried to reason with them, but they just wouldn't listen. I guess I had to ground them. (get it, ground them? I slay myself sometime.)
Oh, and guess what happened after we clipped the chickens wings? It started to rain. Imagine that.
Until next time....
