Today we cleaned out the coop d'etat...

I have been amazed at the behaviour of our chickens, particularly our young rooster, Alby. He is firmly in control of his ladies. When he spots a hawk, he has all of his ladies runing for the coop with a single call.

The hens enjoy the roosts.

This stuff is worth it's weight in gold in the garden. I am sure it is responsible for our good crop of pumpkins! Note the potato plants - no matter what state the compost pile is in, there are always potatoes growing in it!
