Mineral lick as fashion statement

Gem hasn’t been into the makeup bag ( although she is a bit of a princess). She has discovered the block of mineral lick and the nose and lips are coloured accordingly.

Reading Gaol – Chicken Run

We have a big issue with foxes around here so at night or if no one is at home during the day the chooks live in Reading Gaol (I’m an Oscar Wilde fan). The run is totally enclosed even underground with mesh so no one can dig their way in.

Chooks set to work clearing weeds

The main vegie garden has an autumn green manure crop germinating so we have set the chooks to work clearing a second garden patch for some winter vegies. It’s heads down, bums up in the northern end of the yard while they weed in the area that was mulched with llama fleece off cuts 2 years ago.
