Spice busted out

I came home tonight to find that Spice had busted out of her temporary pen with Honey and Sugar and was in with the big girls, Coco and Ginger.  I have no idea how long she'd been in with them.  But the good news is, they didn't kill her.

She was doing a good job at staying out of their way.  And they were focused on me as I had some treats in my hands.  But my heart really did skip a few beats when I walked up to that scene.

I quickly scooped her up and gave her a once over and she seems fine.  So I put her back with Honey and Sugar and stood there baffled as to how she got out.  As I stood there dumbstruck, I watched her as she  hopped back up on the dog crate and awkwardly launched herself skyward and up and over the fence.

I was horrified.  What would posses her to want out that badly and into the pecking line of Coco and Ginger.  I guess the grass seems greener.

I was really hoping to keep them separated for another two weeks while the babies grew up just a bit bigger to give them a better fighting chance once I put them in with the big girls.  But I may have to rethink that.
