Who did you get the pullets from in Bairnsdale Willowgirl?
Hi :) My chooks managed to lay allll through last winter, but this year, no thank you! since the end of summer they've continuly gone on strike (taking turns). They've maulted a few times though as the weathers been a tad crazy. At the moment only 1 of my five are laying..... frustrating, as we enjoyed our abundance of eggs last year! But they seem happy and healthy. plenty of free ranging, plenty of food, will just have to have patience with them. BTW, im in stratford :)
We have a real boggy problem happening in our back yard and have installed a pump system (don't ask me how it works) that pumps out extra water and puts it elsewhere. The yard was drying up but the pump packed it in so while it is getting fixed the water has really started to build up again. I am so glad we don't have Christmas at our house this year or the kids would be slip sliding all about the mud for the fun of it.
