I arrived at the farm this afternoon to discover that Betty had broken her own neck!!! she’d got her head stuck in the feeder. It was very upsetting, losing livestock in this way seems so unnecessary, foxes,yes I get that (sort of), disease, I get that too, but this, not fair, not fair at all. I’ve changed the feeder (again) and made some modifications to it so they can’t tip it over, which was why I’d changed it in the first place. Ho hum, she was a good bird, has laid all winter, sat on some fertilised eggs when broody, mothered the chicks and continued to lay. God bless you Betty and thank you.
welcomethis is a blog about two people making as much of their life as they can by hand on 15th October, 600 forest fires and hurricane Ophelia, ravaged 1 million acres of land, incinerated houses (along with ours) and took many lives, destroying forests and wildlife, infrastructure and livelihoods We are currently looking for new land to build again, in a different way but still by hand......keep checking in and send us messages, your continued support means a lot to both of us
