We had a fairly quiet day today, although we had guests for lunch. C was in the kitchen all morning - almost. He made a marmalade cake (which we gave our guests to take home with them), a pear and ginger cake, which was served hot for pudding (with cream), roast chicken & roast potatoes with lots of fresh veggies. We also served some shortbread biscuits at the end of the meal, I made these on Friday evening.
We finally managed to get some sawdust for the hen house (it is so expensive) so I was able to clean out the hens yesterday, which I do regularly, but at least they had some better bedding. They keep kicking out all the straw from the nest boxes so I am going to see if I can find an alternative.
The cleaning out process. It was very muddy so I spread some clean straw around the coop which helps with the footing (mine not the chickens).
Sawdust - hooray.

Keeping en eye on this girl, she was behaving strangely for a day or so!
I have also wormed the chickens now, so we can't eat the eggs for a few days.
More news soon. Lets see what tomorrow brings.
