Was looking for some sand in the garden to give the chucks and found an ants nest, chucks are made up, a buffet for tea.

Hateful fox. Not the words I want to use.





Not 15 feet from our lounge at about 8:30 last night.

All our hens have little coats on for a bit (more of a cape, they're not cooking in the hot weather) they were getting little bald patches at the base of their tail/back, think Penguin the cockerel is being a bit too amorous.

I was reading about feeding them kitchen scraps last night, was quite surprised at the answer to that in the UK.

Sure they're not suffering from mites and pecking themselves? It's red mite season.

Urgh. Lost my last 4 hens a few weeks ago. Clever fox had lifted a section of rusty buried chicken wire and got through a tiny gap overnight. They will test the perimeter every single night.

I remind myself that it is the foxes territory, not mine, and the cubs will have eaten well. Just feel so guilty that I let the hens down.

Invested in an electric fence. Seems to be doing the trick so far.
