I am Not Going to Scream

I am keeping calm and carrying on ...

And just letting you know that I haven't done the prize draw yet. I've been trying to update my website all day but Mr Site had other ideas. It's just lucky that Mr Marmalade wasn't here.

I am intending to do the draw for my giveaway tomorrow when my brain is less addled by HTML code and web stupidsims.

I will end this short post on a happy thought. After venturing into the empty chicken run yesterday, Mr Marmalade had to have TWO SHOWERS to get rid of the mites which had leapt onto him in a feeding frenzy - having been starved for a week from nice plump chicken. You see how bad the problem was?

Luckily, I have been rescued from the depths of chicken-house despair by the prospect of having one of these ...


Diana (who's nephew makes them) reminded me about them. I know that Gina has one. They seem to be the best option for hens if you don't want an Eglu. Which I don't.

So ... I am saving up for one and I am happy with that thought.

Those are very special hen houses. I hope it's not too long before you can have one!

It looks lovely! The Head Chef has spent most of the day scrubbing out our henhouses as we, too, have the dreaded red mite. Perhaps it is the weather?

They are lovely hen houses and although we have had mites, the places they lurk seem few and far between so they are easily targeted.

Your hens will be very happy in that pretty little house, Julia! hhhmmm...thinking maybe I'd like to come back in the next life as a hen to live in such a pretty little house. I'd be kept as pet, of course. ;o) Happy Day ((HUGS))

How kind of you to link to Ben, thank you! I'm hoping to have one myself one day....
Take lots of deep breaths away to save your sanity from the computer!
Happy week!
