Arriving home tonight, I discovered that Coco had escaped the chicken coop and totally destroyed half of my new veggie patch. She dinned on parsley, coriander, nasturtiums, an abundance of lettuce, zucchini, and plenty of flowers. In short, she destroyed about $80 worth of plants, and almost two months of seed raising work!!! 

So upset :-(

I'm learning the hard way why farmers spend so much time on their fencing.

    1. Yes. You see, there are MANY benefits to having a balcony garden :-)

  2. Oh no!
    Hope she lays some extra delicous eggs for you now as compensation!

  3. Love that poster Sam. Maybe you could try leaving the axe just outside the pen!! Have you trimmed one of her wings??

  4. Uuuuuuuugh that's so sad. Have you threatened Coco that making chicken soup is not beneath you?

    1. Haha there seems to be a theme forming in the comments. I gave her a stern talking to but it doesn't seem to help. Lucky she is the pretty one...
