The Eagle has Landed
...or at least the chooks have relocated.
Eight of these hens are now living in their dome happily scratching and munching their way through loads of compostable material I'm thowing at them every day. They think they're on holidays. This morning has seen the construction of our first compost pile. Just what I've always wanted. Happy, happy day.
Meanwhile, I'm feeling a tightening in my chest at the thought of school going back tomorrow. I used to feel the same way when it was me going to school, now I feel it for my children. Who probably don't feel a thing.
They've been basking in the glorious Spring weather we're currently enjoying, playing with dogs, chooks and of course the chickens that are again residing in the laundry.
You may notice our girls are going through a little bandana 'phase' at the moment.
Better than a dreadlocks phase I guess.
And far less expensive than Pandora jewellery.
