Return of ‘The Girls’

Over the years I have kept fowl and always enjoyed having them. I find watching them both relaxing and entertaining and it is great to have fresh eggs each day, so I am delighted to have them as part of my set up again.
I feel they are an important link in the chain of the gardener/homesteader. Currently I am feeding them lots of greens that have gone over in the vegetable garden. In return they will turn it into a nitrogen rich, compostable material. They will also eat up any veg and bread waste from the kitchen (not that there is much of that😊). They also get layers pellets.
In the past they have often met their demise by Mr. Fox, so this time I have made sure to have their run very secure.
