Happy Hens!

video
We have rigged up a temporary enclosure for the new gals. This will allow them some space from our own hens. Two of the hens have slight weak leg problems - nothing major - time, better diet and environment will sort these problems out, but hens detect weaknesses and our girls could quite easily bully them, so this will suit them. They will enjoy foraging too. Hopefully clearing the area of weeds over the next few days. Whilst I was recording this scene I was aware of Ted, the English springer in next door's garden - you will spot him at the end! lol!

    Springers (shudder) had one of those loopy guys, once.

    1. Oh most definitely Roger - they are basically birds who find the pecking order. Hopefully sorted now - you'll see.

    1. The airing cupboard is a legend here! All washing dried - even though it was pouring down!
