My goodness! You’d think it was spring here! We have three mother chooks and two more sitting on eggs. So much for lots of fresh eggs everyday… but, I have to admit, the chicks are just gorgeous! The photo above is of Silky with her three. The other two also have three each – I must take some photos soon.
One of our hens has decided to go clucky under the meter box. Last time she hatched 7 chicks on the woodpile. She obviously doens’t like the conventional method of using the laying box in the hen house. In her defense, the two laying boxes were already occupied by two other clucky ones.
As many of you know, I love my chickens. For my birthday this year, my sister made me this gorgeous card:
Isn’t she clever? I work with fabric, and my sister works with paper, and does wonders with it I have to say.
And now with all the chookiness around me, I need to finish The Buffet and start on Fowl Play. Oh, and I happened to come across this too: The Hen House. Oh dear, what a shame, another new project to do……
