Let them eat grass

image

It’s got to the time of the year when the garden is low on productivity and the chickens can free range and clear up the parasites that have dug themselves into the top soil.

They’re obviously enjoying themselves

And its time to empty the compost heaps onto the beds so I was very pleased to see this in the first one I turned.

Not quite so free ranging chickens

image

Using the tree posts,  I half arsed together a temporary enclosure for the birds.   The can range in a restricted nature rather than destroy our rhubarb, strawberries, gooseberries, fruit trees, grapes, raspberries etc.   Neither our cats not the birds have worked out how to enter/escape.

The chickens move in!

What’s that? Chickens?

We have Jalfrezi, Korma and Piri Piri

image

They’re very interesting

image

Up top and darker is Jalfrezi, below is Korma.

And Piri Piri, previously the bottom of the pecking order is now at the top!

All the girls are loving the ramp and the open area outside.

They also eat bind weed! Score!

A year at the new pad – Timelapse

It’s been a year in the new place and I’ve gotten round to making the video from the time lapse recorder.  I’m ashamed to say after the first two or three months, the camera ran out of juice, but the important bits were captured!

It’s time to move the camera and it’s now focused purely on the vegetable beds and greenhouse now.  Hopefully we won’t see too much of the cats using the raised beds as giant litter trays…
