Days flying past and summer nearly over.  Babies growing well although some sad lossed.  Keep moving to larger pens.  Ran out of room and spent the month updating the ‘star’ pens.  Four pens in a cross formation with an indoor area in the centre.  Slabbed all inside the pens to deter rats, roofed all four pens and rehung doors.  Good job the weather stayed fine.  Moved in lady rabbits, turkey with pea chicks, muscovy ducks and silkie babies.  Within 2 days the rats had found the quail and they were gone.  So sad.  Quickly bricked up the holes but fighting a losing battle
