Ruby tells them that Selena Sunshine is their sister and she is her best friend. Ruby offers to ring Selena and see if Selena can get her brothers to change their minds. Gretel and Jeanette exclaim that would be wonderful if she would do that.Ruby rings Selena and explains the situation.
Selena replies that she is going to Kowhai Tree Farm tomorrow and will speak to her brothers then. Selena works as a typists in the city and rents a flat in the city she comes home to the family farm most weekends.Later the next day Ruby gets a phone call from Harold Sunshine giving Gretel and Jeanette permission for a dig.Gretel and Jeanette will be allowed to camp at the back of Kowhai Tree Farm for seven days only and they are not to go to an area Harold specifies (where K. C. Bunnyborough is established).
They leave Ruby’s house the next morning and go back to Kowhai Tree Farm and put up their tent in the area where they want to dig.
They continue digging all day.After they have dug in an area they put the dirt back and dig in another area.
Two days later… Ruby, Gretel and Jeanette have changed their mind. They have decided to donate the moa leg bone to a museum because Ruby’s phone is ringing all day and night, plus crowds of people are outside her property waiting to get in to have a look at the moa bone.
John has built a bone shape table top in memory of the moa bone find and gives it to Ruby's Bird Rescue Sanctuary. Gretel and Jeanette have left Kowhai Tree Farm with a very happy memory.
