This is my blog about the day to day lives of my little flock of pet chickens. They're a happy little flock, although they're totally crackers! If you want a laugh, they'll gladly give you one.

Hole in one

Rebecca can be really awkward sometimes ..... and occasionally that gets her into trouble.

We had a clematis to plant, so my son was digging a hole for it just in front of the chicken run fence.  The chickens were in the garden at the time, so it was no surprise when Irene wandered over to see what he was doing.   Where there's Irene, Rebecca will never be far behind.   The trouble was, Rebecca wanted a better look, so she squeezed past Irene to get closer to the action.

She took a quick look, but decided the view would be better from the other side.   She stepped across, but realised too late that the hole was just a bit wider than she'd bargained for.   As a result, she found herself straddled across it!   Her left foot was on one side of the hole, her little right leg was stretched as far as it could stretch, so that her right foot was on the other side, and her body was dangling in between!   And she found she could go neither forward nor back!

I don't think it helped matters that my son and I were having a good laugh at her expense.   She gave us a look that clearly said, "Don't just laugh, DO SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!!"   So I lifted her to safety and my son got on with planting the clematis.
