I win!

In the battle of Shu-Ju vs Chickens to see who shall get the strawberries, Shu-Ju has won Round One. (I should note that the Good Prince placed his money with the Chickens.)

Remember that bamboo those unfortunate college boys had to remove last year? Well, they sat in a pile in the backyard until today, when they found their purpose in life:

And I did not observe the chickens going into my strawberry patch today. They walked around it, they walked by it, but they didn't walk into it. And as a bonus, it even has a slight Asian flair to it.

And please note that the chickens are walking around in a rose petal strewn path...what luxury!

May I remind you that chickens do have wings and are known to fly?

They can't exactly 'fly' over the stakes. If there was something to land on at the top, they can fly up and land on that, and get over the stakes that way. But they aren't strong enough to fly over the stakes in one fell swoop.

May I remind you that chickens are hyperintelligent, quick to anger, and never, ever, ever let go of a grudge?

M5K -- in that case, those college boys who made the bamboo stakes available are in a LOT of trouble.
