Ex Caged Birds Update

I got to see the new batch of ex battery chickens in the light this morning, as I've been leaving for work in the dark and coming home in the dark.
 Although numbers have dropped from 15 to 14 (one died the first night after the shock of moving) they seem quite happy trashing my greenhouse. I'm hoping this to be very temporary accommodation, they've got access to outside (where they've been trashing my veg garden).
The bald things seem quite happy and roost themselves on the greenhouse staging each night, have a good fill of food each day and we've already had a good amount of eggs off them. Not bad for £25 worth of chickens!
Now if they could just grow some feathers!


  1. If you are passing Aldi or such like get me a cheap outing or two of cat food....
    It will help them with feather re growth

    1. No chance! It's good enough of me to let them use the greenhouse!
