Chicken run

I updated my allotment blog ( before leaving Cowley St tonight, with posts about what we were up to over the weekend. And whilst I was sitting at my desk, an emal from David arrived with a link to a site that sells hens. Yes, we are planning to get chickens, for our garden in London, not Gateshead. Since we have a family of foxes living near us, building a chicken run that keeps them out is going to be a bit of a challenge.

Nevertheless, watch out for developments on this. And if it ever gets going, watch out for a blog post about our first egg!

It's a good job you don't want chickens in Gateshead. From what I've read recently about a poor old man in Birtley threatened with eviction for having 'environmental health risk' chickens in his garden.

Also, why does Gateshead seem to think that it's great to allow garages on private allotment sites (identified in the UDP) but if anyone suggests fencing them in for chickens (like I did) they get the arm of the law thrown at them?
