Rarghh our Silkie was dead this morning so we went to get some new girls this afternoon as I can't have 1 chicken on her own, they generally need to flock to feel safe and content.
We got an isa Brown, a Black Rock and a Blue Lace. Settling in so far, we'll have to see how tomorrow goes as they establish their new pecking order.
My aloe vera plants have died as well, left them in the greenhouse but totally forgot about them in the -10 temps we had, I don't think they will recover unfortunately. Good news is those temps will have killed off some nasties in the soil.
