Gardening with nature in mind.
They look so grown up! I love watching chickens dustbathing, very relaxing I find. How are you finding chicken keeping Karin? :)
Hi KarinDon't know if you remember me - I'm afraid I am a chicken novice but you look as if you are really enjoying it!Mike
Hello Mike, of course I remember you - how could I forget! You are right, I am really enjoying chicken keeping. Watching chickens has a soothing effect on both of us. I must admit I don't do their weekly clean, although I sometimes help out, especially with moving their ark and run. That is a two person job. The benefit over the average pet is that we also get eggs.Hope that answers your question, Karen. Sorry not to reply sooner, but we've had quite a hectic weekend and I've been busier than usual this week. I can't really go into details here, but it became apparent to many people that my mum-in-law needed to go into a home - except to my m-i-l, that is, so we've had a bit of a fraught time persuading her to give it a try and now helping her settle in and not feel abandoned.
I look forward to reading your comments, it's always good to hear encouraging words or relevant hints and tips.
