View from the house
The brand new chicken yard is finished and full.
Dan spent many hours on this beauty
which should by all accounts still be up in 20 years time.
The roosting shed is at the left end and the chick rearing area on the right
View from the paddock
And from this side you can see it has it's own water tank.
The chicken nipples are on the way in the mail
and will be installed soon.
Our new Rooster and 3 of his girls, he has a rosecomb which was unexpected.
You can also see our Muscovy DrakeCedric and off to the side is Hedley
And here is our mother and child.
She is not happy at being segregated to the chick rearing area
But after the chick tried to swim
in the water bowl
it was deemed safer all round.
I am so happy to have a full complement of birds again.
A place in the country just doesn't seem right without them.
And duck egg pasta is divine.
