"Ooh look, tasty worms"
"Did you see something move through that window ..... ?"
"It's Mum ..... look it's Mum."
" Hey girls I've found where Mum goes to when she's not in our house."
"Look THERE she is, she's pointing that thingy at us again!"
"I just knew it, she lives in that giant hen house right next door to ours."

Lovely Hubby let the chickens out to have a peck in the fresh grass that is everywhere except Chicken World, they made straight for the house and found me :-)
It was lovely to see them pecking around exploring the new place for the first time, the dogs found it slightly intimidating as they are used to having the place to themselves, Mavis just sat watching the birds in amazement, moving out of their way if they came near her. She's very good with them now having had a good telling off for grabbing the first one she ever saw by it's tail feathers, as Lovely Hubby would say 'she takes a telling', which I guess is Scottish lingo for tell her once and it sinks in!
