Farewell old friend!

If you remember Old Mrs Brown, I am afraid she finally succumbed to extreme old age at the weekend. She was fifteen and a half, which my son reckons is the equivalent of 238 in hen years!
We will not see her like again.
Here she is a few weeks ago, still telling the world what for!

Are they ever going to leave home?

Trusty Welsummer broody still strongly attached to her little brood when they're eleven weeks old!

Never look a gift cock in the beak

Claude, our French Wheaten Marans cock. A handsome chap with the feathered legs a French bird should have. He was surplus to his owners' requirements and they were anxious to find a good home for him which is why he was a free gift. As an added bonus we already have three Wheaten Marans hens, so it'...

Where did it go?

Suddenly I notice it's totally dark at eight o'clock.
It's been like this all our lives and for millennia before that. So why are we surprised every autumn?

I honestly don't know. It must be somewhere in the region of 130-140, but some are given away some are sold, new ones hatch and old ones die. We'll no doubt do a census before the winter to see where we're at.

Guarded by geese

Well, it worked for the Romans when the sacred geese warned of the Celtic invaders from Gaul!
Kaiser, Gretschen, Gretel and Gerda do some guard duty on the patio.

Autumn chick pic

Next season's crop is already shaping up nicely :wink: I managed to catch most of this year's hatch of Cream Legbars posing in the sunshine and the cockerel standing proud on his podium. They are eleven weeks old, should be laying before Christmas and will be laying fertile eggs for hatching come th...
