your free range chickens

by : James Jarrett

I often thought about you
And your free range chickens
Being happy on the land
Living life free
Both pecking and scraping
Getting life from the dust

Good morning chickens 2

But I didn’t know
That it could never be enough
Tho’ scratch might make some happy
I found out too late
That it wouldn’t do for you

But if I could
Believe me true
I’d bring you chickens
Instead of flowers
To brighten up your room

Good Morning Chicken !

Letting out the chickens

I posted earlier in the week about the fact that every now and then we look after a friends farm house while they go on holiday. One of the biggest Jobs is putting the chickens away in the evening, having to collect up everyone of them and shut them in for the night is Great fun!!!

Well we had great fun last night as the head count was a little low, we searched for about 20 minutes until we found her around the back of the sheds hiding as if she knew very well it was the last place we would look.

She was put in for the night and still there this Morning Few!!!

Good Morning!

Every now and then we look after a friends farm house while they go on holiday. One of the biggest Jobs is putting the chickens away in the evening, having to collect up everyone of them and shut them in for the night is Great fun!!!

This job is balanced very well though when the next morning you have to let them out and give them some feed, they look very pleased to be set free for the day!
