The animals are much happier too. Jake has been staggering around outside, with Bo bumbling along and Mattie has been busy digging up her bones and burying them in new places.
The chickens are much happier:
I thought we were going to lose this old speckledy when it was so cold, wet and snowy. She got a nasty cough and was very dirty. I put her in the barn in the nursery hutch for a week or so, and then moved it into the chicken paddock (it's on the left in the picture above) and then finally let her run with the others. Look at her now:
And now we are getting more than 10 eggs a day (I know, 10 eggs from 27 chickens means we are mainly running a retirement home)
Still - the eggs we get are probably the best in Berkshire!
