I dug the run over today

The girls love it when I dig over the run. They follow me with excitement to see if there will be any worms. Ebony got all the worms because she is such a thug that she keeps the other girls away and there were only a few worms.

But afterwards the little girls love to peck and scratch and dig in the freshly turned soil. Smoke in particular loves to dig deep holes. The two bigger girls were down the bottom part of the run having a dust bath in the freshly loosened soil.

They are having such a good time

I love to see the girls having such simple fun.

    They look as though they are having great fun.

    They are loving it! As soon as mine see me with a spade or garden fork, they come running and you’re right, the thuggish behaviour kicks in, especially in dry periods when worms are so few.

      Yes they always come running when they see the fork and Ebony is a thug around any sort of treat. We only found about four worms and Ebony got them all. The other girls don’t stand a chance.

    Smoke is beautiful colours
