I filmed this in March when the avian flu restrictions were in place. We built a new chicken run ready for the breeding programme in the summer. The run will be used for the Columbines, the hens that lay blue/green eggs. More runs will be built during the year.

On Sunday we had to move our two nannies - Janey and Dolly - from the paddock on the Farside plot to the farm so that we could use the plot for our Rhode Island Red hens. Our poultry were due to come out of flockdown the next day - our name for the restrictions to tackle avian flu which resulted in the birds being caged for 5 months. This was the first time the two nannies would have encountered the Hebridean sheep as they were to be kept in the same field.
