Planting trees and amusing the chickens

Over the past week we have been planting out more fruit trees into what is our small orchard, which currently doubles up as the chicken run. Neil would dig a hole and the chickens would come flocking around to grab the worms and then run off with them, being chased by the other chickens trying to get the worm off her. They were so funny to watch.

Even when the trees were planted the hens were still milling around picking up the worms.

Our handsome Apenzeller cockerel who we call “Ted” was crowing loudly, as much as to say to his girls “Come and get the worms!!”

The chickens were all having a wonderful time pecking the worms and running around.  Glad to provide amusement for them, as they lay us such lovely eggs.
