Chickens arrive at Little Haven on 14th October. Six lovely Rhode/Rock pullets almost ready to lay.  Ofcourse, Toby our crazy 8 yr.old Spaniel x  loves chickens – to catch & kill them!

We had to install an electric fence to protect them from him and the foxes that are always about.  But it really taught our Toby a lesson in manners.  Three times he `had a go` and each time received a powerful 1,000 v. shock.   Today he just sits and thinks about it!  Pictured here sitting high on a picnic table!

The hens completely ignore him and are laying us a regular supply of free range organic delicious eggs.
