Chickens like a little sun. They’ll scratch around, have a dust bath or find the best spot in the the veggie patch to have a little kip and catch some rays.
If it gets too hot though, they get cranky. They don’t want to lay eggs. They cluck and moan.
Lucky for them, we emptied out the swimming pool at the weekend to give it a clean. What I did not know was that it would be chicken heaven once that big bit of plastic was moved!
Cold pressed mud full of wonderful big fat juicy worms and other crawly things I don’t want to think about. The girls went mad for it and scratched about all day. They had a wonderful time and went to bed happy.
