Hi all….. not written lately I know… poor show…. mental note to self… must try harder.
Okay so what going on in my world…
It has been a very cold, snowy and wet winter so I have been bought indoors to protect me from the elements. I am currently positioned in the downstairs toilet on the window still, not terribly glamorous but needs must.
The garden is starting to show signs that spring is on the way and the lovely hens are happy as hens can be in winter I guess. They are are still laying well and have all through the coldest months, clever little feathery chickens that they are. The dark mornings were grim though, wearing a miners torch to see into the coop at 7am was the lowest point. Daphne (the biggest of the girls) found the whole thing quite worrying why would she want to get up when it is still dark? are you mental? foxes?. The coop is falling apart, seemed good quality at first but was not built with Daphne in mind (she looks more like a goose than a chicken). So when the weather improves a new home needs to be build for sure.
