Turning the fruit cage into a maternity ward

clearing the fruit cage June 17

Our fruit cage was heavily overgrown with nettles recently. I spent an afternoon clearing them out - the goats had quite a snack on them. The soft fruit crop in the cage is not yet ready for picking but the main reason for clearing the nettles was to allow it to be used as a maternity ward for hens with chicks. Three hens are now in there with their chicks. When they are bigger, they will be released into the flock.

We are using big pots as temporary henhouses.
