Yesterday just one of the chickens came up to the house in the morning, and left a little trail of chicken footprints in the snow. She was around the house for ages before the others joined her. They all sit under the lounge window in a flower bed. When I went down the garden at 5pm to lock them away, she was still sitting all on her own, poor little thing. I carried her down and put her in with the others.
I have been putting the geese in the coup at night lately as well. Since the fox attack they haven't been sleeping in their lovely, warm, straw filled section of the coup, but have been sleeping in the open up near the house. There has also been some sort of animal burrowing around by the chicken shed door, we are hoping that it a hedgehog and nothing rodenty. By locking the geese in as well I am hoping that their noise will put off any intruders.
