The "chook tractor" in The Old Orchard is now home to the remaining poultry.
Out of the seventeen chooks that were in the big pen adjacent to the Water Garden, only four survived the Quoll attack. The Munghorn Gap is a wonderful wilderness area but it is home to some very large, very strong and very determined predators who are very good at what they do.
We clearly need to upgrade our protection down there before considering whether we should restock. In the meantime it is great fun having a few chooks closer to the house.
