|We love our weekend papers!|
Namely this gorgeous girl and her two buddies.
They are not laying any eggs!!!
We've spoken sternly to them, waved axes in front of their beaks, asked them nicely, given them extra straw, given them extra food.... but still they have not produced the goods.
I know what we should do...but of course, we can't! They are our pets. the girl pictured above has been part of our family for more than a few years so she is off the hook. Her two friends, however, are younger, more fertile, or so you would think.
So we talked about this as a family as we pruned,
And made mud pies.
Poo - and lots of it!
So now the above vegie patch looks like this.
Weeds all gone and the soil turned over with beautiful fresh chook poo.
All ready for some serious planting to be done in the not so distant future.
So there you go, a long story but one with a happy ending. For the chooks anyway!
