Just when you thought things were improving?

Good evening folks. I shall only write a brief blog tonight as we are due to have a meal cooked by my Sister-in Law later so I will have to get a move on! Today however, was a reminder that one shouldn't get too complacent! We lost another 2 chickens today and I would love to get hold of the perpetrator of this crime! This damn fox has now dispatched 6 of our hens now, most of which were taken during daylight hours so we will have to build a chicken run and forget the idea of "free range" hens. Sad, as we were really enjoying their gentle clucking whilst wandering around the farm pecking at the ground and picking up the occasional grub/insect.

The weather continues to be below freezing for us here in Berkshire with us waking to frozen pipes yet again today! If it wasn't for our friendly neighbour, Patrick, we would have struggled with water during the day. As the weather has been forecast with a lot of snow this evening, we have now brought the alpacas into our barn again. Mind you, they seem to enjoy the race to the barn each time and a couple of them have established superiority as exceptional runners!

Signing off for now.
