Week 31 2015


Lock up your chickens!  Friday morning when I went to let out our 4 elderly girls from their little chicken house I was met by an open door and a hole in the chicken wire fence.  Not your average fox-under-the-wire attack, but a mid-height wire-cutting-man-sized hole.

I don’t know why anyone would want to steal 4 geriatric old ladies (they left behind 2 eggs) and why they would go to the trouble of cutting through the fence, but the trail of feathers led to a convenient parking spot just round the corner.

Be aware… be vigilant… and put a strong electric current through your chicken fence!

Whatever you do this week in the Gironde and Dordogne regions, have a lovely time.

Best wishes,

And finally…

4 healthy Kittens are in urgent need for a loving family. 3 boys and a little girl around 8 weeks old. The mother must have given birth on one of the rooftops.
They are all very friendly and playful. I am happy to split the cost for vaccination/sterilization/neutering. If you are not able to help, please please please spread the word as I am unable to keep them.
