Today we lost "Dolly" the Hen, remember the one that had all her tail feathers pecked out, well she managed to grow more but was never a really healthy hen even though i tried everything i could. 2 days ago i noticed she was very fluffed up and wasnt sure if it was the very cold weather we were having, anyway yesterday she was just standing on the coup floor all on her owwn fluffed up and didnt even flinch when i picked her up, she just kept shutting her eyes, so i put her in the dog crate i have with some hay and food and brought her in home, hoping the warm would help her, but sadley it didnt and today she died :(

Well January has started off being very cold infact its been recorded that it was actually -12 in some parts off britain, which even froze the sea sea edge!! I think our lowest was -9, mind you that hasnt stopped the Magpies starting their nest in next door but ones garden! The Climbing hydranger has started budding too along with the elderberry. I was amazed one day this week at how many Longtail tits arrived together in my garden, you can see a pic of them below.
