I have a few Strawberry Guava trees in some of the chookpens. They were bought for $2 each as small seedlings a few years ago. They've been growing well but Hubby cut them down a couple of months ago as they were getting too high for the netting over the pens. They were reshooting and looking good. Except the one in the pen where I have the older chickens.
I thought that the wind had broken the top branches but I was out there this evening, later than usual and I saw the real branch breakers.
Once the 5 roosters are gone and the females are added in with the Mixed Breed chooks I will cut off the broken bits and give the tree a chance to regrow. If I'm going to leave the chickens in this pen for so long then I may need to get some proper roosts built. Maybe it's time to play the nice wifey again.
