The letting the chookies out of an evening seems to be working, after a fashion, its a pretty fluid arrangement and when they WANT to stick to it, they stick to it. I can live with that. The island is a riot of buttercups at the moment, you almost lose the hens when they go exploring!
Don't they look wonderfully happy - free range in the evenings or during the day depending on life and the weather of course!
Einstien keeping the girls happy and keeping a watchful eye out for any predators...............
Chookie looking up - whats that in the background trying to eat our food under the cover of buttercups? Its not really a predator, its a peedie, hungry, chancing little puppy!
Almost under cover there isn't he? Always after a good bit of hen nosh, but doesn't normally bother them too much, not when there are scraps to find! Better take him a waak doon the track fae the hoose tae the beach eh?
And a free range gardener on the beach with her free range doggie - we're not huffing from each other - we're both taking in our favourite bit of the beach......!
There was the most amazing sunset last night at 11 pm - absolutely breathtaking - so being free range ourselves we took ourselves to Yesnaby to take in the last of the sun going down.
Gorgeous the way there and just as beautiful on the way home too - what a gorgeous sight - this free range life of ours is pretty amazing! And, we are so lucky!
