Eddieís diary

Itís chicken wars here you know  :ohmy:

The new girls are a bit adept at making a break for it whenever the run door is opened, so have been named Babs and Ginger.  They are a blond and a redhead, so I thought it was that, but it is something to do with Chicken Run, whatever that is.  A film so I am told.  I am baffled, but they think they are movie stars, that is for sure.

Naomi, resident grumpy old lady, is not at all impressed by them.  I keep having to head her off from standing at the run wire getting cross with them.  Sheeesshhhh ... nice sunny day and we are out in the garden and she keeps heading straight for them to stand there and grumble.  They ignore her and she ends up circling the eglu looking for trouble.

I ended up doing laps as I tried to keep her in order, then racing off down the other end of the garden to see what the other two were up to.  Built up an appetite I can tell you, so when we heard the back door open and expected the treats to come out to get us back home, Patsy and I were there like a shot.  Guess what though.  Naomi must have moved at the speed of light because she was over from the eglu and first in line before we even made it down the steps.  Patsy and I didnít know whether to risk pushing her out of the way or not.  Patsy was all for ĎGo on.  Show her who is boss thení.  Thatís OK for you to say Pats, but mess with the aging supermodel, who is still determined she is queen of the flock ....hhhmmmmmm  :unsure:

I do love to hear what is happening in 'your world' Eddie.  You have a far more exciting   life than I do.

Eddieís diary

Summer afternoons in the garden. Doesnít get much better, but as the girls head off into the undergrowth to have an explore, I keep getting distracted.

Those new girls are very quiet at the moment and I am not at all sure what they are up to.  Even having a good hard spy on them isnít throwing much light on the matter.

Then someone notices and starts taking the mickey. This time Patsy, who alerted all the othes by shouting Ďyou mooning over them againí.  No way! I was just standing here like you do Ö

Apparently I have no chance at the moment, because their heads are full of nesting and they are taking turns in being broody, or even teaming up with a joint effort  ???  ::)

Eddieís diary

The new girls take over  :ohmy:

Well we were nesting, but bored of that now, so the big news is that we got our first go at a garden expedition.

We started small, with a wander round the grass but there was a bit of muttering coming from the big run, so we wandered across to have a look.  Eddie was straight over, but so were the older girls and they were not so happy to see us.

Eddie was whispering to back off and not push it, but we saw a chance of some fun, so headed round to the gate.  Then acted all innocent while he tried to keep the peace. They were still all arguing in there as we sauntered back home to our run  :lol:
