Hello and welcome to The Compost Bin. I'm Compostwoman and I live with my family in rural Herefordshire. We have nearly four acres of garden and woodland, all managed organically and to Permaculture principles, which we share with Chickens, Cats and assorted wildlife. We also grow a lot of our own food, run courses in all sorts of things and make a lot of compost!

I am a Master Composter and have spent more than a decade as a volunteer Community Compost adviser with Garden Organic and my local Council.
I'm a self employed Environmental Educator so I run workshops and events where I talk about compost, veg growing, chicken keeping, cooking, preserving and sustainable living. I also run crafts workshops and Forest School/outdoor play sessions in our wood.

We try to live a more self sufficient lifestyle here, as best we can, while still having a comfortable life and lots of fun.

Making a temporary hen run for the poorly hens.

Babs and Goldie are in isolation, taking antibiotics and as I have said, last night they were moved into temporary quarters in the Guinea Pig run and an insulated cat carrier. That was fine for the first night but I woke up today and realised they really needed an enclosure to be out side in during the day.

SO..Compostman and I got the shorter length of fencing and made a hen run in the area in front of the Kitchen window.
The are WELL away from the other hens, and I can see them from the Kitchen window and keep an eye on them.

Babs looks and sounds a lot better and is eating happily and running around, so fingers crossed we caught the problem in time! and that the others don't get it.....
