Update on Chickens

Hi All.

Just a quick update on the chickens.

They are doing absolutely great laying 4-5 eggs a day.

Their feather are now growing back.

I now let them out of their run in the daytime when i'm there with them,i was worried at first that they may run off but the opposite,they will not leave my side resulting in me tripping over them and struggling to get much done because when ever i do anything they are there scrattching the ground when i have just sown seeds or walking on plants that i have just planted!!!

Also i have had to put rigid plastic netting around the beds to stop them eating my greens lol.

They love it when i move things around squabbling for any insects,slugs and snails.

Chickens are looking so much healthier now Bex. They do sound like lovely timewasters, how do you get things done? I hope they continue with their egg laying.

Hi Bex,
Bit of a different request here! I'm a student journalist currently doing a feature on the benefits of 'growing your own,' and the rising popularity of allotments. And by the looks of things, you seem to have a very self sufficient allotment! I was wondering if you would be willing to have chat about your allotment and why you think growing your own food is the way forward.
If your are interested I can give you my email address and we can take it from there. I look forward to hearing back from you.
Kind regards,
Georgina Farrer
