The Girls Help Out Again

DH was out clearing the fruit cage the other day.  The old weed-suppressing fabric needed removing (it's full of holes and not doing it's job) and the tayberry needed pruning.

We'll need to move the Girls' ranging area soon, as we want to reseed some of the back of their pen with Chicken Grass.   We thought that taking the matting of the fruit cage would give them some interest ad give some of the more worn areas of the rest of their "pen" a bit of a rest.

The Girls were beside themselves with excitement as DH lifted each piece, and they leapt in as soon as it was clear 

At times, DH couldn't move without finding a chicken (sometimes literally) on his foot!
