This is the story of the time when three chickens outsmarted three full-grown humans, three partially-formed humans, and three dogs.
Daisy, Gaga, and Paloma were introduced to their new home at Emerson Commons on May 14th. They are the proud inhabitants of a former peacock villa, complete with bay windows, a 24-7 in house gourmet food distributor, and an extensive backyard. In the morning, fresh fruit from the mulberry tree gently sprinkles their yard. And when it's time to clean the villa, they just wait patiently in the fenced-in pool area.
Until they escape!
We found this out the hard way last weekend, and captured a few pictures along the way:
If we have time, those of us who were present for the commotion will share a more comprehensive report of how to spend an entire morning not catching chickens. Tip from an amateur: moving like a chicken is not necessarily helpful.
