Bottoms in the air and beaks down as my 3 chickens do their work tending to the vegetable patch, turning over the soil and clearing away any unwanted slugs.
It was sunny this morning and warm enough for just jeans and T-shirt - very unusual for early January but very welcome. It was a good opportunity to give the chicken house and run a good old clean out and the girls were more than happy to be transferred to the veg patch.
Afterwards they returned to their nice clean home (lightly fragranced with rosemary and tea tree) where they feasted upon a bowl of chopped up and boiled veggie peelings, watercress and garlic - they were in chicken heaven!
