Chickens from both sides

Chickens have their cute and amusing side:

but also their very messy side:

It was time to clean the wet, old, dirty straw out and freshen things up.  We do get lovely compost these days, though.  We keep them on the patio during Winter, so they aren't in a mud bath, and we have less far to go in inclement weather.

As you can see from the first picture, they enjoyed a good scratch in the grass while I cleaned out their living quarters.  Robyn was there, too, but she's a bit poorly at present, so keeps herself to herself a fair bit.


  1. Oh yes, they can be very messy! Good idea about keeping them out of the mud bath - for you and them!
    I hope Robyn perks up, have a great Christmas x

  2. Sadly Robyn died Sunday before last, but I've not have time to blog about it.

  3. Oh Karin, I've just read your comment, what a terrible shame. Hope all is well with you and your other chickens?
    I'm about to publish a post, I've chosen your blog for an award. Stop by when you have time, take care x


I look forward to reading your comments, it's always good to hear encouraging words or relevant hints and tips.
