January 2016 - A very cold start to the year!
Overnight temperature dipped to -2 celsius but don't worry, the chickens stayed toasty warm inside their insulated hen house! The chickens snuggle up with each other when they go to sleep and that helps keep them warm. In the morning they woke up to a frosty white world!
Look at the frozen water!
The chickens were not sure what to make of this frosty world when they got up in the morning. Primrose stood on one leg surveying the white grass, perhaps it was too cold to put both legs down?
30th March 2016 - Chickens' 1st birthday!
Remember a year ago, the chickens looked like this...
Today is their 1st birthday and they look like this!
Happy birthday ladies!
As a birthday treat, they had a whole cabbage! The cabbage was cut in half and tied to the side of their pen. When they chickens pecked at the cabbage, it moved and they had to work hard for it. This is a great way to keep the chickens from getting bored. Just like us, they s-t-r-e-t-c-h their brains when they figure out problems or puzzles!
The chickens have never had watermelon before so they got a slice. This is what they though of it...
