Poorly Chicken

I think you should ask this question on a dedicated chicken website. Try Downsizer, maybe. There are smallholder/livestock message boards around.

Bored of my garden!

Perhaps you could change the colour scheme. The green obviously takes care of itself, but you can confine yourself to white flowers and purple foliage.

Do get yourself a greenhouse, you'll love it! As big as you can manage.

ladybird?

Surely ladybirds only bite if you put your finger in their mouths?

You will only get ticks if you wander in long grass with bare legs.

To feed or not to feed ???

They rely entirely on you for their food; maybe they exhausted the food in the pots long ago.

And me. If you do chop it, I would leave a bit of trunk to grow clematis or roses up.

If you look at it with a strangers eye I think you will agree it is all out of proportion for the garden and it really isn't very lovely. A cedar should really be grown as a specimen tree where it has space to be admired and spread itself.

I don't know how close it is to the house, but it must cast a lot of shade and limit what you can grow in the garden.

Bee/Butterfly friendly flowers, but space efficient. :)

What about some plants for caterpillars? Unless you grow some host plants you won't get butterflies etc.

A patch of nettles is ideal.

Hayloft are variable. Some of their plants are not good.

Check with the Council that there is not a Tree Preservation Order on the tree first.

Hogweed is right, but make sure you consult a professional, not a 'man with a chainsaw!'

Water Butts

Your water butts should not need cleaning out if you keep them well covered at all times. I have not cleaned mine out for years. If dipping watering cans just make sure they are clean.
