The mean girls are gone. And unlike my previous solutions, I did not whack their heads off!
They were picked up today and taken to a new home. He was a dear sweet man who was very happy to have them. His were all “gotten” by something recently and his wife was buying these for him for his birthday.
I hope they work out for him.
And like my dad said, “as a parting gift”, they all left me an egg this morning!
Peace in hi-d’s henhouse at last!
