Hobbiton, New Zealand, where Lord of the Rings was filmed is a place that’s cool for cats, just ask Pickles, she’s the coolest cat around.

307 The other side of life


I asked a local beach walker about the number of dead penguins and seabirds along the beach and she told me it wasn’t unusual as the

ocean is so rough and if the birds are too young or old they are unlikely to be able to cope with the harsh rips and sea conditions.


I don’t know where my passion for keeping chickens and learning how to look after them came from, but when I saw this one on our travels it just reminded me how much I was missing ‘my girls’ and how on earth I could go about making something like this for my own backyard.
