Rachel  I'm all about the good life. 🌱I post far too many photos of my rescued girls πŸ“and Dylan the spaniel 🐾 Follow our allotment progress @littleplot12 🌽

Worked so hard at the allotment today and dug over the lettuce bed. Brought it all back, grubs and all, for the girls who, judging by their shrieks, were most pleased! #chickens #chickenfun #chickenlove #chickenlife #chickenlove #hens #hensofinstagram #backyardchickens #petchickens #bhwt #exbatteryhens #exbatts #rescuehens #rescuechickens

Spending so much time at @littleplot12 recently and it's so fun to see everything bursting into life 🌱 hoping it doesn't rain too much tomorrow so I can get back there! #allotment #allotmentselfie #allotmentlife #allotmentgarden #allotmentlove #greenfingers #sunflowers #yellow #rainmac #grownfromseed #allotmentprogress

Story alert. This chicken is responsible for why I am SO tired today. Yesterday evening, everything was normal. Tom had got back from a funeral and he came down to see the girls and we went back into the kitchen to talk. When I came down to put them away, I couldn't find Bonnie. I don't panic it's a fox because it's still light, I haven't heard anything, there's no feathers, the dog is around, we're right there, the other two aren't stressed etc. So I figure she's being classic Bonnie - the greatest chicken explorer there was. Unlike the other girls who like scratching around, Bonnie loves climbing/flying and getting up really high. She has always got her head looking up and doesn't think she's a chicken, but an eagle. Anyway we check the garden, all the trees etc. Nothing. I start to panic. We have big fences, but I think, maybe (?!) she's found a way over. So we get ALL the neighbours out searching. Then it's dark and we're all out with torches and shaking trees like mad people because they know I adore my girls. I reluctantly go to sleep and do not sleep well at all. This morning, she's there in the chicken area like nothing happened just waiting for breakfast. I can only assume after starting life in cages she fancied a night sleeping under the stars and was very well hidden. Needless to say, she's lost her evening privileges going forward and we've had stern words. But I'm just glad she's ok. I think she misses CJ the most - maybe she wanted to tick off a few things on her bucket list. Bonnie, please stop climbing trees for your mother's sanity! πŸ™ˆ #chicken #crazychickenlady #crazychicken #hens #hensofinstagram #chickenfun #chickenlife #chickenlove #chickensaspets #backyardchickens #hens #hensofinstagram #chickenstories #rescuehens #rescuechickens #exbatts #exbatteryhens #bhwt #hensofinstagram #phew #coffeeneeded #chickentales

"Mummmm I'm cominggggg!" It's been a funny couple of days missing CJ. But tonight I just sat and watched the girls roam around, and felt happy they were happy ❀️ #chickens #chickenfun #chickenlove #chickenlife #chickensaspets #hens #hensofinstagram #rescuechickens #rescuehens #exbatts #exbatteryhens #bhwt

I have been waiting for ages for this Dahlia to open. Dylan is proudly showing it off because he hasn't crushed it. Yet. #dahlia #flowers #flowerpower #mygarden #greenfingers #homegrown #spaniel #spanielsofinsta #cockerspaniel #cocker #cockerspanielsofinstagram #posingdog #orangeisthenewblack

She's gone. The kindest, most beautiful chicken who I will miss every morning. In the end, she left us very quickly last night after a heart attack. And she had a good last day. I'm so very sad right now. But I'm also happy, that she enjoyed her retirement to the full. She arrived stressed out and featherless, and she left us loved and with beautiful golden feathers. She enjoyed the sun on her back and digging for worms, and she went crazy for cauliflower and woodlice. Sleep tightly πŸ’›#chickenlove #rip #exbatteryhens #chickenlife #chickensaspets #hens #hensofinstagram #bhwt #iwillmissyou #love #lifeaftercages

It's been a hard few days with CJ. Her peritonitis has flared up again, and I'm crossing my fingers and toes super tightly. I gave her her medication and she seemed brighter this evening, regaining some colour and wolfing down dinner. Then, she hopped into my lap and settled down. I rubbed her comb and she purred, and we sat like this peacefully for ages, until Debs decided she wanted to sit in my lap too. Most people think it's ridiculous to love a chicken, but if you knew this chicken, I guarantee you'd love her too. πŸ’› #chickenlove #chickens #hens #hensofinstagram #chickenlife #chickensaspets #bhwt #britishhenwelfaretrust #crossyourfingers #animalsarefriends #animallove #animallover #love #selfie #exbatteryhens #exbatts

Such a wonderful day with my lovely little sister at Wimbledon 🎾 Sat on the hill for Konta and then Centre Court for some fantastic doubles and Pimms. ❀️ #wimbledon #tennis #wimbledon2017 #sisters #selfie #pimms #pimmscup #pimmsoclock #summer #wimbledonhill

Trying to cool everyone down with some watermelon water but they seem to be running around more in excitement πŸ™ˆπŸ‰ #chickenfun #chickenlove #chickenlife #chickensaspets #chickens #hens #hensofinstagram #backyardchickens #rescuehens #rescuechickens #exbatts #exbatteryhens #bhwt #britishhenwelfaretrust #watermelon #summer #animalsarefriends
