New Year Update

New Year Update 1

Ok, I know we’re well into January now but I haven’t posted a blog for quite a while so thought I’d dip my feet back in with just a quick update.

Not surprisingly it involves the chickens again as they as so easy to write about and can hopefully get things ticking along.

I took the video using my new action camera I got for Christmas and had it mounted on a pole to get a more unique angle. I didn’t intend to add the Jaws soundtrack but it works out quite well!

I hope any readers had a good festive period and I’m so happy that the days are now getting longer. Lots of planning to do!

Mabel (Red), Mavis (White), and Maude (Grey) loved getting out! The chickens have a coop and a run and whilst I want them to have more space and be …

I’ve got chickens!


So two weeks ago something exciting happened. I finally got my chickens! I’ve been talking about getting chickens for probably the last two years, ever since I moved to Chartham, but finally it was the right time to get them. I decided to make the leap into chicken ownership once I’d returned from my Easter …
