A clematis on the outside of the chicken run has taken off & grown across the sting-top on the chicken area. The string-top was Andrew's attempt to keep birds of prey out -- it's worked well! And now the clematis is providing shade, too. What a happy accident!

We planted a dwarf Golden Delicious tree in the chicken run. For the next two years we'll have to pinch off the apples, but in 2017 we'll get to harvest! I'm sure the chickens will appreciate the shade (our motivating reason) and the fallen fruit!

This was my first try at injera - the Ethiopian staple flat bread. It's like sourdough crepes, kind of, but even more delicious. Unless I'm making it. My first try was not a success, but the chickens liked it :)

This time the attacked chickens weren't ours, but another Bexley family's. The think the perpetrator was a cat. The chickens are convalescing on our breezeway while their family is out of town. One of them seems pretty beat up, but they're both hanging in there. If Peggy taught us anything it's not to count a chicken out too early.
