They're still a bit scared, keeping their distance from the older girls and haven't figured out bedtime yet but they're doing well. :D

It seems like three days is the longest I can leave the brooder now before it desperately needs cleaning.
I guess three days is better than everyday. I already have to clean the drinker/feeders twice a day. Messy, messy chicken babies. 😞

It's been raining for most of the day and I'm waiting in for a delivery so I've been cooking/baking and cleaning the house. I made a chicken, chorizo and bean stew. And a lovely little milk loaf to go with it.
I walked the dogs over with me. Trouble managed to cut her nose through her muzzle (she's dog aggressive) which was upsetting but once we got to the allotment and I took the muzzle off she was fine.
I dug up some potatoes as they'd all died. I'm hoping it wasn't blight that killed them. It didn't look like blight. I really, really need to do some digging, weeding and mulching but I'll have to wait until its a bit cooler and I have transport.
My lavender are looking nice. :) I'll be giving them a trim soon. The strawberries are also looking good. All it took was to completely replace the soil in the beds.

Please ignore the state of me. I am aware I don't look great. We finally got all of the buildings down at the allotment and so should be able to get my poly-tunnel built relatively soon. I'm hoping to reduce it to eight foot by ten foot and put it on that bed in the centre of the photo. Exciting, exciting times.
