Last weekend, our lovely girls decided to do some not so lovely things. They got into our neighbor's garden and destroyed about twenty tomatoes. The neighbors couldn't have been nicer about it and never once mentioned fencing them in. The wife loves when they visit their yard and she picks them up and walks around with them all the time.
However, we felt inclined to put up a fence of some sort and make amends with the neighbors by delivering a dozen eggs. So now the ladies have a spacious area to roam with a complimentary compost heap. On the plus side, we don't have to worry about them making their way towards the road. We plan on letting them loose in our yard when we're home and are able to babysit them. Otherwise, they'll have to enjoy digging up bugs and other treats in the compost instead of the neighbor's tomatoes.
