While we were away, the chickens were busy with a surprise for us. Frederick the cat gave me a report on the activity.
It seems that Junior, the rooster, called the girls into action, suggesting that they clean up the herb garden and get it ready for the new plants.
Even Goldie got into the act....normally she feels like this work is beneath her.
Here Junior is encouraging the girls as they get after the weeds.
Frederick said that they worked hard for hours and got a bit nervous thinking that they wouldn't get the four bags of soil down in time before we got home.
It seems that their worries were unfounded as this is what we saw when we went out back. What a nice surprise to come home and find this bed all ready to go. Bless their little hearts...I think a special treat is in store for them, maybe the favorite, black oil seeds.
Did you have any Easter surprises?
Have a sweet day! xo
