Sorry that I haven't posted since Sunday - I haven't been very well, but hope to start posting a bit more soon.
I have GOT to rest up a bit, doctors orders, and I am backwards and forwards having acupuncture so that only leaves me a few days to do things. Not good results from the MRI scan either, and they want me to go back for another scan. Hey Hoy - the joys of getting old I guess.
Still enough of that.
I have managed to do a bit of pottering - will type that up later today hopefully, and will have news on what the chickens have been up to.
So don't give up on me - normal service should return in the not to distant future, but my poor old body needs a bit of a rest so that it is sooner rather than later.
Lovely sunny day here today, - and dear husband in taking me up the allotment to help me move Adelaide, KoKKo and Ginger's house and run, over a bit. It is has been sat in the same spot for almost five days now and the meadow has taken a battering there.
I have still been letting them out freeranging for 3 hours a day, and the run and extension are plenty big enough for far more chickens than just my three, but as chickens love to dig and scratch, they soon ruin the grass, so there are bare patches now where their run is. I was moving it on my own every other day, but just can't manage it at the moment and OH has been busy doing his own things.
I will take a photo to show you just what three chooks can do in a few days. Mind you they love Dock weed so I am happy that they eat that. They have also had a stalk 4ft tall, of purple sprouting broccolli in their run ever day which they have stripped bare - so that has saved the grass a bit.
Back later - hope that the sun is shining on you all.
