A lull in the weather …

… but another storm is forecast within the next 24 hours :(

So we took the opportunity to get out in the garden while the skies were clear (and they are still, at the moment, perfectly clear and blue … ) and to give the Moppets a chance of some sunshine.


There they are, in the background. And for the next few hours, I suspect this is mostly the view we’ll have, since they’ve been ‘indoors’ for nearly two weeks …

    They look more like ‘down ducks a’dabbling, up tails all’ there, heads down in the soil!

  2. Have to agree with previous comment but the photo is priceless! Got to smile.

    Our original hen keeping adventure came to an end in January 2013, when a fox took our entire brood of hens. But don’t let that put you off … you can find the story at The Hen House Archive where there are still lots of stories, photos, and information about keeping hens I hope you'll find useful.

    March 2017 ... All change in the hen garden as the fruit cage run is retired in favour of an electric fence, the veg beds are relocated to put the hens on fresh ground, and the new girls arrive, Dorcas, Delilah and Deanna.

    January 2017 ... Bird flu outbreak and all domestic foul are quarantined until the end of February.
