searching for sanity while nurturing one man, two toddlers and two dogs in a confined space
Have you installed a chicken coop in the backyard???? Not bad pets, those :)
That's at my aunt's place in the country, and the man attached to my daughter is my cousin! But I grew up in Putney, SW London with chickens in the garden - big for London standards, and nobody ever complained! Sadly the foxes got them in the end...
Ah, have heard good things about Putney, but never realized you could keep fowl there. I grew up with chickens too, but they mostly met a similar fate as yours at the paws of coyotes (nature's biggest bastards). How lovely that you got to escape to the country - having only just moved back in from the burbs three weeks ago, we forgot to leave for the bank holiday weekend - oops - and the place is a bit of a ghosttown...enjoy the rest of your retreat.~M
Well my parents place is a quarter of an acre if you include the front garden, which is quite unusual. When they bought the house in 1973 nobody was moving to Putney - what, south of the river?! Have you moved back to London? Coyote? Where is their habitat outside N America? I don't think you were in the States so where did you grow up?
Wow, half an acre in London? Heaven!I grew up in rural New Mexico, but I've been in England for years. We've just moved back into a broom closet norf a the river - sadly no half an acre here...not super-familiar with most of London yet to be honest - still in the exploration process. Would be cool to meet you - will you be at Cybermummy this year? ~M
