      Today is the daaaaaay! :D
      Had a busy one yesterday finishing off the fence and doing some other odd bits. Will update properly after I've had breakfast and gotten everything ready for the girls :)

        The run is ready, just need to put straw and mite spray in the coops. Haven't done anything with the little nesting box yet as haven't had chance but will be making it draft free before letting them be in there overnight.
        A couple of fox/dog proofing bits to do with the gate and hedge, but going to do those this afternoon.
        There got some layers crumble waiting for them as well as a big pot of mealworms :D

            What a wonderful day for those wee chooks Sarah. We have sunshine and I hope you have too but they'll need a parasol methinks....as it will be their first look and feel of the sunlight instead of battery lights,
            and that lovely fresh souwesterly breeze today...:wub2:
            It makes your heart sing...:chicken: :whistle: :SUNsmile: :whistle: :chicken: :whistle: :SUNsmile: :whistle: :chicken: :whistle:

                            They've been loving picking around in the soil and dirt. The soil can get really dusty when it's dry but might get some play sand to make a decent bath for them :)
