Our two new roosters from up north, Petal and Handsome, are settling into the sanctuary well, they are both cuties! To begin with we put them in one side of the chookhouse and Spook (Julius) in the other until they got used to each other a bit. With wake up calls as early as 4.30am, it was a relief to be able to move them to permanent quarters further away in the orchard! We've dog-proofed the fence and trimmed a couple of trees a little so there are rooster-sized spaces to roost and they seem to have settled in fine, after sorting out their pecking order.
We've been continuing tree planting with the help of our first wwoofer. Our organic garden is flourishing and we've started tree lucerne and vege seedlings in punnets and done some gardening. It's awesome as to have longer days and great weather at last!!!!!!!!
