Our poor chooks have been considering their next life as a duck following the torrential rain that the UK has sufferred from earlier in the year.
Saturday we cleaned out the run – we’d have done it earlier but B&Q had stopped selling Hardwood Chips which we use on the base of their run.
So after visiting lots of garden centers and DIY stores, we went the Internet route and ordered 10 bags of hardwood chips from www.bark-uk.co.uk.
The price wasn’t much more than B&Q – and to have it delivered on a palette was a bonus – and saves the hour or two that I had to spend cleaning my car the last time I picked up woodchip.
We ordered ten bags, with the assumption that five would be enough, and keep the other five in the garage till the next time.
The woodchip arrived dry – and for the bags we are keeping to one side, we’ve split the top open so any moisture that is present can escape.
They seems a lot happier – lets hope the weather lasts too.
