The last few days our yard has been visited by the neighbor’s chickens in the afternoon. The same neighbors who we ended up ‘borrowing’ Artie from. So I guess he’s used to them. Their dog Katie, also shows up in our yard on a regular basis, and on one occasion we had to return some of their cattle. One of their horses also made a break for it one day, but rather than visiting us, he continued on down the street. They sure have a hard time hanging on to their livestock. I’m trying to figure out how we can get the chickens to lay their eggs while they’re over here, but for now they are at least ridding the yard of spiders and snails. Leaving a bit of soil enrichment too.
