Red hens, that is.
After the days (and days!) of grey skies, it has been a delight to get back into the garden. We’ve been improving the soil with the help of the chickens. The chickens have their hutch cleaned weekly and the lightly composted straw + waste is mixed into the garden soil… and the chickens will scratch at any unprotected surface.
To prevent the scratching and destruction, please meet the lettuce cage. So far, so good. The only problem is that we haven’t worked out how to harvest the lettuce in our time!
Life with the chickens is fabulous!
