Dear Family & Friends
First of all, I want to say that I'm proud of the Brits who made their brave stand for their own country! Blessings for the coming success!
It's summer time, the heat is increasing, the garden plants are all going crazy with super growth, lots of food and beautiful chaos. The bees, butterflies and all other beneficial garden creatures are all frenzily busy all the time. The new lot of chickens bought earlier in the Spring are now growing big. They too are happy as we move them about in the grass lawn pecking and scratching for food insects and clipping the grass and weeds, at the same time fertilizing the soil:) Yes, it's one big happy garden!
|From under our grapevine area, you can view part of the garden where our chicken tractor is.
Yet, we find that the mobile home we made for the chicken is not good enough. So we recently made it higher for the chickens to be able to roost on at night when they go to sleep. It's now a two storey mansion...with a summer look, just by adding an old chewed up parasol!! Rustic look huh?!

As you can see, their previous house was just a tunnel made out of tubes...and as weeks pass by, we noticed they started flying to the roof top of the low tunnel to sleep. It's amazing that the tunnel took all their weight!!
|Last week, the chicken mobile tractor was just a tunnel - and they all perch on top to sleep for the night!
Now, in their new mansion, there's perches to perch on...so far, they are not using it. The first night in their two storey mansion...they all flew up to the roof top and it collapsed. We fixed it again and hopefully tonight...they will learn to perch on the inside perches and not on roof top! Our silly chickens can really be silly sometimes!!
|This week, the tunnel was rennovated and turned into two storey mansion...so they can have indoor perches
As a family, we all seemed to get entertained by the chickens in our garden from day to day...oh...it's never a dull day in our happy garden... We are still working on this model of a light-mobile chicken tractor..if I've got more updates...you'll surely be told.
For now, I wish you good week ahead and hope that it is pleasant where you are. It is very warm here and I'm literally wilting in this weather, but..this is summer and it is just for a season...I might as well try to see the joy out of it! Wish me all the best!
