Mad as a wet hen

I took these pictures over the weekend, after the Friday night storms. In common with everybody else in southern England, we’ve had far more than our share of rain in the last few weeks. We’re not flooded, but the water table is right up to surface level. Woe betide any hen that fancies digging a nice dust bath.

The Year 2 free range area is just mud.

The Year 1 area looks better, in that the grass is still growing.

But close up, you can see that it too is soaking wet.

At last it looks as though the rainfall is easing. Hens need to scratch. And we need to dig!
