It's been getting cold here, with some nice warm days mixed in. The chicks have been growing up fast, and as you can see, so has the grass. :)
As is our beautiful dorking cockerel. We're keeping him for a while, so I'm open to suggestions for names! He still has some brown in his wings, I'm hoping that will disappear as he gets older.
We had a brain-storm yesterday while searching the tip-shop for inspiration for the chook feeder. We already had a chook feeder that we'd all but given up on, because the chooks would make a mess all over the floor. This is what happened after bringing home this garbage bin lid.
I had to see if it'd work, so I asked the chooks what they thought..
Happy with that response, I hung it up in the house.
Really hoping this helps keep the food in, meaning less for the mice. (Although the chooks enjoy snacking on a mouse now and then, catching the live ones seems quite the challenge!)
Otherwise, we've been keeping busy, mostly with chook-related things! I'll give up saying "I hope we have something house-related to talk about soon!" and just say..
Until next time! :)
