Confined to barracks

chicken run Dec 16 2

On Wednesday, DEFRA issued an order that all poultry have to be caged and separated from wild birds for 30 days due to an outbreak of avian flu on the Continent. While it is easy to issue the order, carrying it out is a nightmare. Nevertheless, we've done it. We have confined out chickens to the fruitcage and the spare goathouse. We've netted the area between the 2. The ducks are confined to the duck run. We have another 28 days of this to go.
