Fencing OUT Pesky Chickens

Well you knew and I knew it was coming - having to put a fence around the raised beds. Yep, it had to be done before anything can be planted. Those pesky chickens - well, let me tell you, they will dig up anything and everything. Poop and scratch and not necessarily in that order!

Here they are - I'm trying to put up fence posts and they can't wait to see if there's a worm or a bug somewhere. Thank goodness they do their job - at least 5 eggs a day - most days 7. You would think I'd be up to my eyeballs in eggs but not the case - relatives, friends, neighbors all get some and I eat a few myself.
