The Chickens are Moulting!



They are actually nearly done moulting -thankfully - moulting combined with shorter days means not many eggs, but the new feathers are lovely!

Here you see one chicken mid-moult - actually she is over the hump, should have seen her last week! DSC_0010 
 
The old feathers ready to go are browner - this is the last one to go then everyone will have fresh new feathers!

Chicken Fence!

Well, sent out the Christmas card with the saga of the Chicken Run Fence and did not update the blog with the Saga of the Chicken Run Fence! Here are photos of the completed fence - the big, tall, built and re-built and added to to make taller fence AND solar-powered Christmas lights along the top just for fun!
