We got 4 'point of lay' hens (the large brown ones) and 6 small chickens which should be ready to eat/freeze in about six months. We should be getting a supply of eggs starting in about two weeks time. They seemed to have settled in and after 48 hours shut in their quarters they are now free range - well at least until the ewe chases them back indoors. I also had a lesson in clipping the hens wings - after a lesson on catching them. Well I'm glad everyone else found it funny!
I have also, this weekend, dug out hole for a wildlife pond. This I had to do before the poly tunnel could be built. I now have to get a pond liner pretty quickly as I am under pressure from the boys to get the pond finished. This is not really a priority but Tom loves pond dipping and is very knowledgeable about the pond life so I'll try and get it done sometime (ish).
