i had 5 chickens and they ate all my lawn and i was very displeased it cost me £25.00 because they dug a big hole all the way to australia. the children then climbed down this hole and i now havent seen them for 3 weeks! can anyone help me to track them? i'm far too afraid to go down the hole! i have just won £161 million on the lottery so we have been too preoccupied to track the children at this current time. where are they? and do NOT buy any poultry!
I suggest you drink such vast quantities of champagne that you fall to the floor comatose and brain damaged. After that you won't need to worry about your kids, you'll be lucky if you remember them. They'll be lucky if you don't. Much better way of life in Oz anyway.
ah now mine don't, my lawn is fine. I have 4 bantams. They have a dig around in the borders, and mine too are sods for nicking out of my veg/fruit garden especially strawberries! , all I really need to watch is seedlings, established plants are fine, but nothing a bit of chicken mesh and a few bamboo poles won't sort for a time. It all depends on numbers you have I think, and the size of garden, my sister has 12 and a smallish garden and they do make a mess at hers. Ducks - now the really do mess up your lawn!
we hada whole border with strawberries in, and i had put some runners into pots in the winter to propagate - all fine till the chickens got range of them - now i have one sorry looking strawberry plant (with chicken wire round it)
