We have a new camera! Hooray! ... so I vowed to be good about updating the blog only to start uploading the new pics and then be told that I have no more space left on the blog :( I have taken a couple of weeks to decide whether to pay to continue with this blog or to start a new blog.
I decided to stick with this one for the next year or so! :)
So now I am a little behind on my posting...
We had a gorgeous April! Full of much needed sunshine to warm our bones and bronze our skin.
Living in England, we made sure that we made the most of the sunshine. We planted some more vegetables, fruit and herbs.
The chicks are growing nicely and have enjoyed lots of outdoor time in the warm sun.
We had some sad news though, a fox got into the chicken coop and killed Hermione and Honey :(
So that day Hubby went to a local farm and bought these battery hens to replace the ones we lost. The kids named them Joanna, Clurky, Peach and Mama Mia.
HOWEVER, we feel really bad now as these chickens keep picking on Storm and Mary. Our old girls spend most of the day by the house away from the other chickens :(
On a better note, the new hens are looking MUCH healthier although the feathers around their necks still have to grow back.
On another not so good note, Joanna climbed into the horse trough and drowned...phew looking after chickens has been ....interesting!
It's even been warm enough to get the paddling pool out. The water, on the other hand, is still freezing :)
After many hours debating on how the new run would be built, it is finally finished!!!! The chickens only go in it when we are out but they love it :)
