Garden and croft

Chickens

Meet Hey-Hey

We have always wanted to have chickens and took the opportunity to build a coop and run during lockdown.

we added a run under the sycamore tree.
we allow the chickens to roam around the garden every afternoon.

The chickens keep the lawn weed free. However, they love to excavate the ground under the bird table. They are very entertaining and follow us all over the garden, looking for food. They are amazing at catching voles and mice ( poor little creatures). We now get 4 eggs every morning. We are purchasing two more in September from Donald Hen, the Skye hen man.
