Chicken and Things

Well we moved the original chicken run and coop to position it next to the walk in run ready for any new girls we may have. I must re- design and repair the run and repair the coop. The place where it was has now bee cleared of all vegetation including weeds and all we have to do now is to turn it over to get the manure into the ground and then Maggie has a new flower garden in the front. She has already got a lot of bulbs for it. It should look fabulous when its in bloom.

I have decided to cover the ground in the walk in run with bark or wood chippings and to place a paving slab by the door. this should be a vast improvement for everyone.

Maggie has a little problem so I’m taking her to see the Doctor today so I’ll probably go on to Woodies and get the bits for the run.

With luck the weather will hold until late tomorrow so we can get the rest of the turf in.

We had some luck over the weekend. I got approval from the archaeologist and the engineer and they have informed the Council of their findings so all being well Planning permission will be coming soon for our Grannie Annex.

Just come in from checking for eggs and I think one is going broody. If so I now know why she would be called a clocking hen. The noise she makes is like a clock. Strange.

Oh by the way I’m not putting this on facebook any more after this. Just have to log in. It’s on my profile.
