Lizzie, Lottie and Lily venturing out of their run this morning. http://i758.photobucket.com/albums/xx228/tedyates_photos/PICT0002.jpg http://i758.photobucket.com/albums/xx228/tedyates_photos/PICT0001.jpg http://i758.photobucket.com/albums/xx228/tedyates_photos/PICT0004.jpg
Got the run sorted by 8am, after an early start. The ground was drying up, and half the run is now roofed over with corrugated plastic sheeting. We have put more paving slabs down at the other end, and put a thick layer of wood chippings on the rest of the area. The girls are having a ball, flinging...
This morning we let the girls out for ten minutes, after making a safe area (we hoped), with three tall windbreaks. I stayed inside with a tin of mealworms, and OH took photos of them. They were quite cautious at first, but loved the grass. One thing concerns me, we have a lot of clover in our lawn,...
We should have got the run wood chipped yesterday, when it had dried up, but couldn't get the goods until this morning, when after torrential rain (again), it is a mud bath, and puddled everywhere. Got the corrugated sheets today - over eighty pounds, gulp, and OH is building a stout frame to fix th...
Until today, we have spent little on our hens. The hut was from freecycle, and we already had wire netting, though we bought some small gauge costing around ten pounds. Today we have paid twelve pounds for wood chippings, extortionate I thought, until we coughed up eighty four pounds for corrugated ...
We knew that we were going to get heavy rain, but last night's was torrential, and this morning the run is like a fold yard. We had talked about covering it over during the winter, and decided to make enquiries today about plastic corrugated sheeting. We got the shock of our lives £30 including VAT,...
I have done the DIY moving, and also had the experts to do the job. But we always get landed to move our offspring, who never seem organised, and packed and cleaned, in readiness for the big load to go to the new house. When we ourselves moved to our retirement home, our moving day coincided with my...
I shall have to brace myself to catch them more often then. My OH has to do this for me, as I have not yet got that part of hen keeping sorted! They will let me stroke them for a second or so, and observe at close quarters everything I do. I poo pick three times a day in the run, and clean their roo...
