People often ask and I tell about our chicken escapades. I have always said, chickens are smart birds - well, for the most part. We reinforced our fence to protect the chickens from our big dog. They have developed a taste for pepper leaves. We wrapped chicken wire around our plants - the chickens have learned how to go around that - sit on the reinforced fence - and the feast can be theirs... Now if the little ones would learn their roosts are in the coop and not on my son's window ledge at night, would make life even more easier.
