Polly likes the rain!

polly loves the rainLeaving for work in the dark and returning at near dark, I was worried the girlies weren’t getting enough free-ranging time. Last week they went to roost at 7.15 at night. Now the clock’s gone back an hour they were inside by the time I had opened the door of the run to let them out.

I didn’t dare leave the run door open when it was still dark but you know what? I started thinking about their predators and dogs can’t come in so that leaves cats and I just gathered they’re big enough now. So I just open the run and leave them to wake up to a free-ranging paradise!


But I still didn’t know how they were getting on in the rain. It’s been raining for days now off and on but mostly on. So this morning after I came back from my swim I had a look. Polly was just walking around as queen of her estate and came to greet me when I came through the gate.

The inseparable Molly and Dolly were in their tent run actually eating from the chooketeria. So they can use it!

And then even they went for a walk in the rain so all good with the Ollys!
