The chickens have arrived!

On Saturday, we moved our two flocks of chickens from our garden at home over to the walled garden at Carlton on Trent.  They have a lovely big wooden chicken house and a penned area to scratch around in.  We’ve currently located the pen around the base of the largest plum tree so that the chickens will scratch around and eat any insects and larvae that could potentially infect next year’s plums.  Both flocks seem to have settled in nicely together, although we do have one chicken that has managed to escape twice now – needless to say it’s wings have now been clipped!!
