When they were taken to the vet's for their checkup and health assessment, I was told they were 3 months at least and Jade was pregnant, so likely even 4 months. They were not fed so they pulled wool from the sheep and ate that for a little bulk and scarfed down whatever grain they could before being knocked away by a ewe. Jade had a broken hip likely from being kicked, but it was too late to fix and would always bother her a little, especially in the cold when she was old. She was terrified of a man wearing a hat and so was Jenna.
Jade was a sneaky little girl, never coming out exactly and taking what she wanted, but kind of sneaking it and running. She has not outgrown that. For a while she was eating eggs and then I managed to stop that and she seemed to leave them alone. Now she has started again. She goes into the coop and sneaks them out of the egg box, one at a time, then runs to a hiding spot away from prying eyes of other dogs and me, to break the egg open and eat it.
I recently changed the toilet seat in my house and had the old one hanging around. It is the right size opening for a chicken, but not for a Jade. She cannot go into the chicken coop anymore, but the chickens can pass freely. Perfect. I screwed it in place and created a barrier, outsmarting that smart pup! For now anyhow. When spring comes, the ducks and chickens lay eggs everywhere and anywhere on the farm, just not usually in the egg boxes. We shall see how that will work out then, but for now, Jade is no longer able to get the eggs. Ta da!
