Wednesday, 3rd June - Jonah’s chicken bridge

admin on: Forest Blog

Jonah and his dad kindly made a bridge for the chickens to go over, under and even through (before they get too big!).

Chickens are curious and also like to be entertained and have a variety of things to do.

They were certainly curious when Jonah laid it down but didn’t venture on it.

In the morning it was covered with poop, hurray!

Living on the Fledge

admin on: Forest Blog

Today two fledglings sought freedom for the first time and tried out their wings.

We could not see the mother or father but we knew they were there, watching.

It is common for chicks to spend time on the ground initially as they wait for their feathers to grow and practice flying.

Their parents bring them tasty morsels and teach them how to do this for themselves, how to spot danger and hide fast.

They’ve got a lot of learning to do and the best thing we could do was to leave them alone.

The children insisted we bring them food and water first.

Hi Mrs Bell

I have just seen your blogs on trees.  I just wanted to say that I have just planted a Salix in my gardent.  It is really pretty do you or the children know the other name it is known by?
