The sun is out and Chicken Cam is in play...

Daisy is the spitting image of our Ruby. Lovely to see the girls enjoying the garden and I am now feeling guilty because ours haven't been out today! x

This is what I would like... chickens helping with the gardening.

I do love Light Sussex hens. They are so good natured and plumptious! Mrs Pumphrey was a Light Sussex and she was a good 'un, too. Xx

It is a joy to garden with hens, Jess, though you do have to watch where you put your feet/ wheelbarrow/ gardening fork! It is a very companionable activity - they chatter away and of course they are excellent bug hoovers!

Your garden looks nice Denise, and I love the Lavender Walk. Yesterday we had the fencing posts put around the front garden so I can now reclaim my front garden from our chickens and geese. Yippee...I can do a garden again without it being ravaged by foraging chickens!

Wow - a special ChickenCam just for me, I feel really honoured! Lovely to see Primrose and Daisy at home - I thought they were uncharacteristically quiet, after the conversations you've reported on here, but no doubt they are camera-shy.

I'm so glad I'm alone in chatting to my hens, I keep up an ongoing (one-sided, of course) conversation with mine. Gardening with them pottering around is a real pleasure, they bring the garden to life. I really like your lavender walk by the way, with the willow border.

Thank you for this little window into Much Malarkey Manor. Oh, and thanks for the knitting pattern, too!

But Vera, isn't part of the fun of gardening that of having the help of a chicken under-gardener?? Although you do have a massive gang of chickens and I have only two so p'raps you are wise with the fencing! Maybe you could let them in one at a time, as a companion?

Olly, Primrose and Daisy said they would have been more verbose but I caught them at a tricky time - i.e trying to cause as much chaos as they could before they were confined to their pen again! The willow border was crafted by Andy himself from the willow arch we have grown. It don't half throw out some shoots each year! And I hope the knitting pattern works well for you! x
