Gregg has been off this week and has made huge progress with the fencing - all thanks to a nifty little tool that he managed to get for attaching the chicken wire the fence. So we now have all the poultry safely tucked into the bottom area of the garden down beside the burn - they had taken to going across the road in search of better worms and came very close to getting squashed by large tractors a few times so hopefully they'll appreciate it rather than being a bit peaved at not getting to wander!!
The photos show the fencing coming down from
the main road in front on the chicken run, and along the main road. So all that's left to do is a bit of picket fence from the main road down to the corner of the cottage and put the new posts and gate in - not much really!!!!!!
The apricot call ducks have settled in well, they seem to enjoy following the geese around and have now ventured on the "the big burn". The females are very noisy - every time you hear them quacking away it sounds like someone has told a funny joke! They also like wandering around in the grassy part of the garden which is nice as I can watch them from my work room
window. Here's a picture of them playing at the big burn - hopefully they wont go wandering and get lost down the burn - they might end up in Alyth!
