We now have a little bird house
Inside a big bird house!
I converted the back of the hen enclosure so that it was safe for the blue tit chicks to go in. It is kitted out with a little bird house (not that I think they'll use it but it may show them where they can nest when they're older!) a few branches and a couple of plants, seed and nut feeders and their bowls of worms and water.
One of the chicks found his way onto the pot plant
Shortly joined by it's mate.
Sadly there are only two chicks that have gone into the aviary, Fidgit and one other are still indoors as they are not flying at present. I don't know why, not sure if they have injured themselves or if it is more permanent, we'll have to see what happens over the next few days.
Hopefully the two that are in the aviary will take to it well and I'll take down the netting at the side so they can get out and about properly but I shall leave it so they can still get in!
Well I am off to market once again tomorrow, Welwyn Garden Craft market and I have a few orders just to package up ready for collection. Then I might get onto making some new stock! Never thought how much of my time these birds were going to take up!
Have a lovely weekend everyone
