Our hens have been surviving the continuous wet winter weather and provide us with 3-5 eggs a day, they run free range in our forest garden area of the croft. Recently they have been scratching away on the banks of the croft burn where the ground is drier and quite sandy. We cleared gorse from the bank and have been planting a mix of fruiting trees along the cleared ground. Amelanchier, John Downie (Crab Apple), Sea Buckthorn. On occasion we will use the hens as chicken tractors to turn over raised beds or other ground for seeding.
