The time has come to get a huge gum lopped in the backyard thats been threatening to fall across my Silkie pen. So have been out there this morning before the heat comes in dismantling some of the pen fences and putting up a temp fence to keep them contained in the back corner of their pen out of harms way while the tree is cut down. The only way we can get the truck up to the tree is for it to drive thru the Silkie pen, hence the dismantling. So the chookens are highly impressed at being contained in this temporary area They're gunna be even more impressed in the mornin when the truck drives past them then the chainsaws start up and limbs start dropping everywhere lol boy are they gunna be making a racket Maybe having to take down part of their pen will inspire me to finally renovate it to the way I actually want it... ;D
they are the most inquisitive / nosey little chooks you could ever wish to have if there is something going on there in it may be that's why I love them. Little balls of fluff that do not miss a trick ;D ;D ;D good luck with it all Trev

They are such characters arent they At the moment I've got 3 hens co-mothering 2 little chickies in the main pen amongst all the other silkies quite happily. Yesterday morning I'd let everyone out and fed them then come back around to refresh water dishes and got to the Silkie pen only to find that the hens had brought the lil chickies out to play around a big tree stump and a poor young pink and grey galah had got too close for their liking. Well, what a sight that was watching 2 Silkie hens bashing the crap out of this poor galah! I had to go over and break it up before they killed the poor thing. Meanwhile during the bashing the 3rd hen and chickies happily continued their outing into the sunshine, oblivious to what was going on
This is the tree to be taken out. Such a big bugger I couldnt even fit it all in the photo lol
yes that is a dangerous looking tree, good thing to be getting rid of it. who is getting rid of it for you..............if you could pm me if you don't wish to say on the board, i need to trim a jam that is getting too close to my power line.

Was lovely and cool for a change wasnt it! Over this wind already tho! The birds coped pretty well with the lopping. They settled down after the first half hour or so. Altho unfortunately the disruption was enough for one of my Indie girls to leave her nest which is a shame, but nevermind. The poor guinea fowl are the most put out by the trees removal and it was their roosting tree. They didnt know what to do with themselves earlier when it was time for bed lol running around like "where to go? where to go?" They finally settled on roosting on an old tank stand that they used to use as a stepping stone on their way up into the tree. Rather unimpressed they are hehe
