Free Chickens at last !
Delighted this week as we have been able to let the chickens out again after being cooped up over winter due to the governments directive over Avian Flu - got to me honest they have not liked it and not got on well with each other . I definately know where the term pecking order comes from !
We are delighted to be mentioned in The Leicester Mercury this week as a destination for a staycation in the Leicester /Rutland area. We are listed among some great places to stay so feel proud to be chosen to sit alongside them.
We are spring cleaning the landscape this week removing dead branches , brambles from around the lakes and starting to tackle the stream to allow the new growth to come through . Mark & Logan stained the new benches we have near the chicken shed so you have plenty of outside space to sit and have a coffee with us now that you are allowed out ......
We had an unusual visitor on the fields behind the house at breakfast - a huge white swan , by lunchtime it had found the lakes. It
made the geese look tiny!
