Our Chickens

We have 5 chickens, I don’t think I will ever get tired of watching them. If we are not in, they are inside their electric fence, but most of the time, they have a 3 acre field to roam around in.

And still they want to go to the vegetaChickens on compost heapble plot or compost heap.

If I am working in the vegetable plot, I  often let them in to allow them to have a good go at getting some of the bugs etc, it is a delight to see them so happy. They also love digging on the compost heap, unfortunately, they tend to spread it all out again, so you end you shovelling it all back onto a heap.

 

 

 

I still find it amazing, what a variety of eggs we are getting, the different colours and sizes.

This is their field, the amount of times I see the ‘patrolling’ the field, they must walk for miles each day. I can’t wait to see the blackberries ripening again later this year, it is so funny seeing them jumping up trying to pick the berries.
