Not a lot has been happening around here this last week, just getting out of bed is hard enough. Hubby has been working long long hours (3 lots of 2am breakdowns are just too many in 1 week!) and I have been unwell. Hopefully this will all improve soon. Meanwhile….
After much debating and several more escapes, I came to the decision that the 4 big chooks had to go. I posted an ad on FarmStock and within hours a lovely lady from Clifton with much acreage, called and was most grateful to take the girls to add to her ageing flock. So now I just have the 2 Golden Lace Wyandottes, no eggs from them yet but the weather is warming up more and more everyday so hopefully soon I will have eggs.
For now I will keep the flock to just the 2 girls and maybe later might add two pure breed bantams. For now I enjoying watching the girls do their thing around the yard. This has recently included scratching their claws on the mats from the trampoline – I think they enjoy the noise it makes, every afternoon they are straight over there scratch scratch scratching away. Then onto the best patch of dirt in the yard for a good dust bath.
I feel this is the best decision for our situation at the moment, especially if we are to be moving. As it is very likely the yard will be much much smaller than what we have now.
