Busy weekend Doc, buggar about the cold weather. We have actually been quite cold this weekend also, so I am pleased that I haven't planted the tomatoes out yet!!!!!
You might need some snuggly buggly to keep warm????????

Good day all!
163 beers, bejesus, that'd take some getting through....Reads like a pretty lively weekend, shame about the obvious bad bits!!
Any chance you can get some coats for the bald chooks....
dont chooks give off loads of heat? i've seen permaculture designs there the glass house backs on to the chook house so the chooks can help keep the glass house warm at night. some of them do end up looking like SPCA cases when they are moulting. our horse is moulting too as it is spring. my middle child brushed her the other day. it looked like there was a deflated horse on the ground so much hair came off and she still looked like a threadbare old carpet!
interesting. our flightless nocturnal parrot, the kakapo, who was here of recent at the ecosanctuary apparently has the slowest metabolism of any bird ever measured. they're vegetarian so they are always eating too.yes, they have a very high metabolism, which is why they are almost always eating...... and look really ratty when they molt..
