Today we ambled down late to the allotment to be met by indignant chickens demanding to be fed the second they spied us walking down the path. Honestly, to hear them, you would think they had never been fed!
We fed them before checking them for mites and dusting them with mite powder. I have attempted to put a video clip of how to check for mites and where to powder – I hope it works!
After dealing with the chickens, quail and checking the coop for any signs of rats (luckily nothing today) we decided to attack another strip of weeds on the bottoms plot. In a swift and efficient manner, the next strip of weeds was cleared and we pottered home for a well deserved lunch!
